If the monitor really isn't sufficient, then I'd suggest allowing an
open file descriptor to be specified on the -vnc arg, eg

  -vnc localhost:3,passwdfd=6

And then let QEMU read the password from this file descriptor. I'd rather
XenD just used the monitor though - it'll ultimately need to use it anyway
to perform disk/network hotplug amongst other things.
