password exop and encrypted passwords

I'd like to use the new password exop, but I'd also like to store my
passwords encrypted.  I'm using PADL's pam_ldap and when I change my
passwords using the password exop, they are stored in plaintext.  I'd like
them to be stored encrypted.

My question is this:  where is the task of encrypting the new password?
Should pam_ldap encrypt the new password before doing the exop (which I
*think* would work, correct me if I'm wrong), or should the LDAP server
encrypt it (which is how I understand iPlanet's server does it)?
