There isn't currenlty a way to hide stdout. I think the best solution is
to pass the information another way, perhaps using a FileDownload step,
or just with configuration on the slave.

I don't think there would be opposition to being able to handle this.
But the danger with something like this, is that if we add data hiding
for security, and we miss one piece of data, all we have done is add a
false sense of security.
