bug#28785: 27.0.50; Wishlist: There should be a mode for .netrc and .authinfo

Lars Ingebrigtsen

This mode would just be the normal fundamental mode (or conf mode or
something), but it would add `display' properties on all password tokens
so that these wouldn't be immediately visible to passers-by while you're
editing the file.

And a command to toggle the visibility, I guess.

Hm...  perhaps a general minor mode that hides certain bits based on a
syntax of some sort?
