Gack, no! You'd have to write an algorithim to attempt it, and I believe it
is based on the UNIX encryption alogorithm, which is pretty damned tight if
you're smart. Try getting a crypt program like crack if you want to break
into them ;-)
Not that I advocate doing so, but crack was intended to be used by
sysadmins to warn of weak passwords... and became a hackers tool.
