I can't help but think that, barring line-buffer issues, the newline could
just be echoed to stderr instead of stdout (same for the password prompt).
After all, that is the purpose of stderr: a stream for messages that
shouldn't be redirected when redirecting the output into a file or pipe. Has
this already been discussed?
