[R] readline() for passwords?

I am using RODBC to access a password-protected database. Is there a possibility to prevent that the password appears on the screen when issuing the odbcConnect() command? I thought of something like readline() without echo. I guess that a getpass()-based solution wouldn't work for ESS/Emacs, anyway, would it?

Thanks for your attention!
