[Melbourne-pm] Obfuscating passwords in configurations

Hi All, 
 I'm using Config::Simple to retrieve configuration options from an external file. One of the configuration options is a password, but I'm really not keen on having a password in plain-text in a config file. Just setting the config file to be non-world-readable isn't really adequate. Can anybody suggest a way of obfuscating the password in the config file, and being able to retrieve it in my program?
