With respect to using username/password combinations in InstallMgr.conf can
it not be made such that InstallMgr.con uses an environment variable (which
can be set and unset to use password), an ssh key (such as a public key as
in key exchange based logins), or some other method such as having the
.conf encrypted?

I likewise agree, storing passwords in a flat text file is a bad idea,
which should really be a thing we've moved beyond.
