I think that having this as a default is a good thing™ (no more clear
password in lossage).  About being able to revert this behaviour, I know
I won't use it but maybe it has some use case with the dribble file: do
people use the dribble file as some automation tool for example?

Ok, I'd one to this patch when we have decide the default and if it
needs a user option.
