I'm on 0.05, and it only appeared in 0.06:
0.06  Sun Aug 28 13:07:00 2005
	- Setting $Term::ReadPassword::USE_STARS to a true value now
	  echoes stars for password characters.
and it looks like Term::ReadPassword::Win32 does not support that yet.

IO::Prompt looks OK though, but it loads a boatload of dependencies on Win32, and it still haven't installed itself, so I don't even know if it's working.
