Hashed passwords are great if your purpose is to check whether a given password is valid.

Which is what I understand the original requirements to be. They are a bit unclear - I interpreted them as needing to check a password, you interpreted them as needing a password in clear text (perhaps to pass to a DB or something else).

[Corion]: When you pass an arrayref, you get to treat it like a local array. But then, I'm cautious with the experimental features, because just when I thought function signatures were a set thing, there is a proposal to use sub [ $foo, $bar ] { ... } to ...
[Corion]: ... declare the parameters, instead of the more common sub ($foo, $bar) { ... }
