Description:
Feature request to allow mysql_config_editor to accept a password from stdin so that one may pipe the password in instead of typing it.

How to repeat:
echo -e "admin\n" | ./mysql_config_editor set --user=admin --host=127.0.0.1 --password

Yes but it does not work on all OS (like Windows) and it needs external tools to be installed.
