[Enhancement] mariabackup option of '--password' or '-p' without specifying password in commandline

      Description

      Hi.

      During mariabackup testing, I realized that for the option of "--password" I had to specify password in the commandline together.
      If I use the option only without password, It says it requires a argument.
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      [root@maria-master full]# mariabackup --backup --target-dir /tmp/full -uroot -p
      mariabackup: option '-p' requires an argument
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      For security purpose, It would be great that we just get the password input in next commandline like the other client tool does.

      Great thanks,
      Kwangbock
