Can I use hashed password for ldap_bind_pw in saslauthd.conf?

chmod 400 saslauthd.conf

If someone has enough access to read the file at this point, they have 
enough access to modify your LDAP database files using the 'slapcat' and 
'slapadd' commands, so any additional security of a hashed password 
would be useless.
