I've been looking at the Ask Dialog with a view of using a clone of 
it in my application.  However, I'd like to be able to present a 
traditional "change/set password" dialog where the user is asked to 
enter their current password and then type in their new password 
twice.  This means I'll need direct access to MC's encryption 

I've checked the on-line help and can't find any reference to 
encryption in MC apart from stack the protection mechanism.  However, 
when I looked at the scripts of the Ask Dialog, I found the use of an 
undocumented function "mcencrypt()".  Does anyone know the details of 
this function, what it produces and how secure it is?  Also, is there 
an mcdecrypt() function or is the mechanism one-way only (a very 
common approach!)?
