And how would you like to *enter* your master password?
You don't really want the on-screen keyboard for that (wouldn't want to
reveal the password by displaying it).

Possibly you could use gestures: the password is:
left-down-left-right-up-left-down;
The downside of this is that a very long sequence is required for adequate
security (~20 gestures are equivalent in strength to a 6 characters
password).

A /major/ weakness IMHO.
