Brazil of TinyMUX fame has written Omega, a flatfile converter that can remove #1's password attribute on PennMUSH as well as other server flavors. Check it out at ftp://ftp.tinymux.org/TinyMUX/omega-

Run as: omega -1 mydb mydb.out

He suggests that you examine a diff between the original and omegafied db to make sure it's only changed what you wanted it to, just in case.
