You mean setting LC_ALL to C for all subshells?  I'm not sure that's
what most people would want.  But having the passwords show up in clear
text in the shell buffers is totally icky, too.  (I just fixed comint to
do the password recognition for the

address@hidden ~/src/emacs/trunk/lisp]$ ssh address@hidden
Password: 
Response: 

case just now, though.)

But for other locales: Perhaps Shell mode should have an interactive
function like `M-x shell-query-password', so that people can trigger the
non-echoing entry mode at will?  Or perhaps a keystroke to switch off
echoing, that would be ended when typing RET?
