Dear Developers,

during using PostGIS in GRASS5.7 I stumbled over a clear password entry
using module v.format and PostGIS.
My Postgres-User who acts with PostGIS and GRASS has a Password and in
order to make this connection work I have to enter my passwd in

Would that be possible to prompt for a password, if one is needed when
trying to connect  and not exporting it via gg.gisnev.
g.gisenv store=mapset set=GV_FORMAT=POSTGIS
g.gisenv store=mapset
