Hum.  I take it from the fact that the patched version of 
bin/list_members can display passwords that the passwords them selves 
are stored in reversible encryption.  (I'm presuming that they are 
encrypted...)  I do question the feasibility of this.  Though if 
security mindedness was used, what the OP is requesting would not be

Wouldn't it be possible to extend both the web interface and command 
line tools to be able to accept some sort of delimited string that 
includes the password, something like /etc/password is colon ":" 
delimited, or similar.
