In a future version, I plan to make something customizable: regex or something like that with a mask for passwords or private info to hide.
We're currently in release candidates process, so it will be added after release of 0.3.0.

The password displayed on screen when user issues the identify command is displayed as asterisks properly, but for the ghost command, the password is displayed as plain text. Make it asterisks.

The /iset plugin. If we want to add a ghost or an identify command to be executed after auto reconnect to the server, then also, the password is displayed as plain text. I am not sure how this can be fixed as the user may enter any command he/she wishes. So, an option to ghost a nick and identify automatically can be added to the /set options.
