New submission from Thomas Grainger:

Having the password stored in a plain-text configuration file is not great security.

A better choice would be to try to use the OS keyring and then fall back to a plaintext file

An example implementation of a generic keyring python interface is available at: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/keyring/
