Plain Text Password

Description

Version 1.6

This is not really a bug but could be a security issue.
When I extract a download queue it is put into a text
file to reconnect again. The password is placed in the
file as a plain text. A simple encoding algorithm
could be use so it is not so easy to get someones
password.

Why not have all the data the program uses ciphered with a
password?
You can also cipher all the hard drive with a password.

Don't do bad hacks!

Since FileZilla is open source, encryption would not make
much sense.
