Those who think that transmitting passwords across the net is a good idea need to think again. It is not necessary to send them at all, just to use easily available encryption techniques to send a different long string each time which bears no relation to either the key string or the password.

Isn't that pretty much what happens when the login process is over https? (passwords, like almost everything else, is encrypted in the browser before transmission, using random keys that are re-generated for every session).
