Thanks for the suggestion. I didn't see it on worg, but in ob-sql.el I 
found support for ":dbconnection". I can set up an entry in 
sql-connection-alist, and give the name of the entry to the sql block 
via :dbconnection. Now, my password is safely out of the .org file. As a 
bonus, it is easier to maintain across different org files.
