Summary: password should not be plain text

Initial Comment:
Currently, the passwords of all accounts are plaintext in accounts.xml:

<account>
        <protocol>prpl-jabber</protocol>
        <name>[EMAIL PROTECTED]/Gaim</name>
        <password>MyPasswordHere</password>
</account>

Is there any way to avoid such vulnerability to be compromised if anyone access 
my pc?
