in thread How can a script use a password without making the password visible?

That's not necessarily true. The coder can run the script in the dev environment, so they can see the dev database password. But the production db passwords remains hidden to them.

Moreover, the coder can't change the code to show the password. Such a change wouldn't pass the code review.
