Secure Treatment of Passwords

Registered by Philippe Delodder on 2009-09-07

At present the passwords are stored as clear text in a configuration file. It would be better if they were stored securely as part of the Gnome/Mac OS X Keyring or the KDE Wallet System. Secure password storage and retrieval options on Windows should be researched.

Need to look at http://pypi.python.org/pypi/keyring the Python Keyring Lib
