Option to NOT show the password in the Members Area.

I believe show the password cPanel or another panel to Members Area is a security flaw, needed to be an option only for the exchange password, without displaying it.

In WHMCS 6.0 and later, thanks to advancements in and the implementation of Single Sign-On with leading web hosting control panels, web hosting account passwords are no longer displayed within the client area by default when using the Six theme: http://docs.whmcs.com/Customising_the_Six_Theme

I agree with this. In many european countries some laws (data protection ie.) don´t allow to show raw passwords.

Apart of this, is a very nice implementation allow us to allow/disallow to show passwords at least in member area.

I definitely agree with this. Displaying passwords anywhere (That includes client signup confirmations) is a huge security issue, especially since not all installations use secure (SSL) connections. If people forget their password, they change it.
