I can argue both sides of this. If all pw's are stored in tde-wallet, it 
is handier than bottled beer or sliced bread.  OTOH, anybody who can 
crack the tdewallet encoding would also own the whole machine, and thats 
scary, so if pw's are kept on the machine, I'd feel a heck of a lot more 
comfortable if a different storage method was used per pw stored so the 
attacker only gets one user per hack it may have taken days to get while 
staying lost in the other noise of the rejections you will see if you 
tail the iptables logs in your router.  I used to watch that for 
entertainment, until I figured out that the entertainment was equivalent 
to watching enamel paint dry.  dd-wrt was having none of that.
