Simulating password entry

I'm writing an app that simulates a network server login on Mac OS X. I 
want the password field to behave just like normal password fields in 
OS X; i.e., bullet characters appear in place of clear text. I've sorta 
kinda got it working by trapping the keydown message in the password 
field, but it's quirky. Before I spend a lot of time on this, I thought 
I'd ask: Has anyone done this and would mind sharing a script?
