(which means you would be storing your password in plain text in the file

Hmm... No, you'd be storing the hash of the plain text password, and reusing
it every time it is required. No plain text passwords would be necessary.

However, you say that the hashes change every time for the protocols? That would
make it useless.

I'm talking in generalities, because if only one protocol uses altering hashes
then it's still a good idea. That different protocols use different hashing
techniques is largely irrelevant, because you just store whatever the 
password is for each protocol. But if all of them use some sort of handshake
to change the encoding of the hash each time, then you obviously can't store
the hashes.
