Default Option to display password characters briefly in browser - Boxee Box

In Boxee on the Boxee Box, when entering a Wi-Fi key or the Boxee account password using the remote's keyboard, the characters entered are displayed briefly before being masked out with an asterisk. This makes it easier to enter the password, particularly if a combination of upper case and lower case letters and numbers are used.

It would be useful to have an option for this with password fields in the Boxee Browser, as it is quite easy to mistype a password. This is a particular problem when using upper and lower case letters due to the remote having a Caps Lock instead of a Shift button (a few times I've forgotten that Caps Lock was on when using the remote's keyboard).
