mmh i do not believe this is good idea. and actually it is not kismac, 
which asks for the password, but the security subsystem of macos x. 
kismac used to do this in another way (which would have allowed the 
saving, but it has been way too insecure). i will sleep over this, but 
i guess it would cause a lot of headaches...
