Well, yeah, there's lots of two-way ciphers available, which would allow you to protect the stored passwords. But even so it's overkill for lots of applications. It will keep Evil Doers from compromising your passwords if they have access to your filesystem, but if they have access to your filesystem you have bigger problems anyway. I personally don't bother encrypting passwords unless money is involved, but, as always, TMTWTDI. :-)
