I'd like to make gnome-screensaver use a black circle as the "invisible"
character in password fields instead of an asterisk ? OS X and XP
both do this.
Besides that I think it has some advantages:
* It is cleaner (no edges)
* It is easier to see (for a11y and on LCD screens in sunlight)
* It isn't a character that is commonplace on most keyboards
The usability list seems to support this and some are surprised that we
aren't using this already.
There is no i18n impact.
