Comment(by dd32):

 I'm not sure emiting the password in the HTML and setting it as
 {{{type="password"}}} is going to be the best, I'm certain we'd see a
 "Password shown to hackers!11!1" type report in that case...

 If anything, I'd like to see the field shown blank/greyed down with a
 message explaining it. Upon option save, it'll be possible to check to see
 if the value submitted is non-empty and different from the current one.

 Of course, the other option is to do type=password & echo ***** and just
 prevent updating the password to that value..
