Email accounts' password

Hello guys,

first of all, congrats for RoundCube. Very nice Webmail.
Now my question: that may seem stupid at first but that's a real 
question ;-)
Something's missing according to me: users can't change their email 
accounts' passwords. For my email server configuration, and because 
that's my server, I just need to run one SQL query to change the 
password (I'm talking about the IMAP or POP account, not the RoundCube 
profile account). That'd be nice to have a section in the configuration 
file that tells to RoundCube how to update the password if applicable 
(SQL query / executable). Something like:
$rcmail_config['update_password'] = "UPDATE database.table SET password 
= sha1('__password__') WHERE email = '__email__'";
 If this section is set, well, RoundCube would display a "change 
password" field in the "my profile" page.

But that'd be worth it if and only if other users agree with that idea. 
What do you think?
