I'm having trouble figuring out how a password input method would know 
whether you meant to backspace, or to insert a backspace character. I 
like it! How about a password with a literal carriage return?

It seems in my terminal i can type literal backspace and carriage 
returns by preceding them with ctrl-q. For me to want to use one in a 
password, i'd have to be confident that all password input methods would 
accept workarounds like that though.
