New Feature - Masked Property Bag Values

Recently, a colleague of mine asked me if the Property Bag Settings can mask/hide some values from the users.

That's to allow administrators to set a Property Bag Value as masked property, to ensure other users are not able to see the property bag value. Examples of masked values are Passwords, IP address, E-mails etc.

I thought it would be nice to add this as a new feature to my property bag settings. Now, if the value is marked as masked all characters entered in the Value TextBox control act as a password textbox. For example, you get something like this:

Note: the password text entered is not encrypted in any way and you can still retrieve the value using the object model
