Email2Case - Password stored in plain-text. Has anyone encrypted it?

I am working to install Email2Case for a client who by rule will not store any passwords on a computer in plan-text.  If you've worked with the toolkit, you know that the config is done in 2 text files.  Has anyone added onto the package with password encryption to make it more secure?  Just wondering before I start going down this road.
I haven't tried it, didn't even know that it's possible.

Can you tell us of your experiance please?  
The issue is that your config is stored in text files, and passwords are read as plain-text from those files, so anyone viewing them can see sfdc user and pass information in plain sight!
