Actually, the encrypted password is 32 bytes of binary, where the
hashed one we store is 32 hex digits.  I think that's the bug that
comment was referring to.  Can't store raw binary in XML files in the
same way we store a string of hex digits.

A big old stinking pile of genius that no one wants
coz there are too many silver coated monkeys in the world.
