There is a GUF (Generic User Folder) HowTo that explains
how to use encryted passwords in the same way as you do.

After you have set up GUF (very good explanation in the HowTo),
all you need to do is place your "username,password" pairs
into the database.
A small Python script can be used for this. It probably would
use the DB Api to control the database.
