[asterisk-users] Encrypting passwords in config files

I was wondering what the best practice is concerning passwords in Asterisk's config files.
ari.conf has a neat feature where one can use a pre-encrypted password by using
for an ARI user
However, I was wondering how to do similar things with e.g. database credentials when using realtime.
Right now I am using a plain-text password in res_odbc.conf to get the database connection working.
So the only protection here is restricting file permissions of the config file.
Two questions that arise from this:
Is there any other way to do this that I am missing?
If no, would it be a desirable to implement pre-encrypted passwords for other config files in the same way as it is done in ari.conf?
With best regards
