As I'm not sure whatever you (or the others) noticed it, here goes:
This functionality, or kind of the same, at least, was implemented
some time ago and is available in lsh 1.5.2 and newer. I'm referring
to the askpass options, which lets you specify a binary that should
output the requested password/phrase on stdout (what is requested is
supplied in argv).
While this isn't exactly what you asked for (and, I admit, a bit
cumbersome if you really only want to supply the password on the
command line), it's much more flexible (in the aspect of what you can
do with it).
