I used to think that, but a password is almost always recoverable, on
more or less any Linux system. It may be inconvenient and time
consuming, even expensive for one reason or another, but a password is
almost always recoverable or resettable so I've stopped worrying about
making my passwords 100% safe from destruction or loss. However they
should be as close to 100% secure from being stolen as possible.
