Not sure about the ALIAS= syntax. What about the good old EL ? I agree
with Jevgeni, we've already talked about configuration issues in EE. It has
to go further not just restricted to passwords. What about :

    portNumber=3306 )

Sorry if I didn't understand well but passwords are just one of the many
possible configuration on an EE app. The fact that it's encrypted makes it
slightly different but we could treat it in a different way. Something like
password="*${aClearPassword}*" and password="*
