Actually, with an Apache conf such as:
AccessLog "| mycommand > mylogfile"
you can hide the password on the fly so there's no intermediate file.

The user can always at the very least generate them by hand. With any
POST form, the user can also directly send the fields with a GET
(assuming the data doesn't overflow the server GET limit, usually 4k).
This is important because some keitai don't support POST, and
translate every request into a GET.
