I've never used rclone with WebDav, but a quick look at the
documentation tells me that you can configure the password with an
environment variable and that is what I would do. Eg.:
RCLONE_WEBDAV_PASS="$(pass show path/to/webdav/pass)" rclone ...
That would similarly also work as command line option, but would reveal
the password at the process list to any other user/program on the
machine. Injecting it via env var is *slightly* more secure. HTH.
