Huh?  You can't look up a player's password!  Or did you mean *set* the
password?  I completely agree that an admin should be able to set a player's
password.  Circle already has code to do that.  But there is no reason
in the world why an admin of a MUD or a Unix system should be able to
look up an existing password.  You cannot do this with Circle.
