Allow 'Show Password' capability for command parameters
Many modern APIs where password inputs are expected have an option to 'show password' as it is typed.
Define a standard function key to use when prompting a command that will cause the field where the cursor is sitting to show the input (overriding the command definition which says to not show it). Pressing the function key again would toggle this and hide it. Pressing the key would not effect its suppression in the job log.
I just realized a similar idea is here but that one specifically calls out RUNRMTCMD. I'll leave this one here if you want to separate out changing RUNRMTCMD from the idea of adding a 'Show Field' Fkey.
