Mask or Hide Password in External Data Source

Is there a way to mask/hide the password for an External Data Source (ODBC data) authentication using the option to specify the user name and password?    The password is visible, not masked, to all accounts with Full Access.

For example, in a script to import records using an ODBC data source, the password is masked and you can select "save user name and password."   The script will run perfectly for users without prompting again for the password and they do not get access to the password.   However, the password in the Edit Data Source box for an external data source is clear text.
