| Correct me if I'm wrong, but it appears to me there is no way to encrypt
| database passwords or any other configuration data that is stored in the
| config?  This is particularly bad in that the password is also displayed on
| the config in the UI.  Has anyone else dealt with this issue?

you can prevent people from displaying the config using
the acl features.

in simple mode the displaying the config uses 'acl_root'
in advanced mode 'acl_getconf', and 'acl_about' for
the debugging page.
