Just for clarification (because my explanation was perhaps imprecise):
Moderator and owner passwords are kept in separate keys in the
config.pck dictionary, so even if you are both a member and an owner of
a list, your member password will be cleartext but the (shared) owner
password will be hashed (same goes for the moderator password).
