Does anybody know if, using an SSL connection rather than password substitution (and therefore passing a clear password in the IBMSUBSPW negotiation) "long" passwords under PWDLVL >= 2 present a problem?

I know that password substitution requires a new algorithm for PWDLVL >= 2, but then again, password substitution (even with the old algorithm) is a much bigger pain in the butt than simply securing the whole connection via SSL.
