Summary: GAIM doesnt encrypt account passwords in accounts.xml

Initial Comment:
A friend of mine informed me that gaim doesnt encrypt passwords, so I went 
digging.  Sure enough, he's correct.  Gaim stores saved passwords as plaintext 
on the filesystem in ~/.gaim/accounts.xml

This may have been fixed in the 2.0 series, but I am not yet using 2.0.  If 
this has been resolved in the 2.0, please reply with an acknowledgment of the 
resolution.

Thank you!
