Yes, this is reversible.

I use a python script to set the passwords automatically, it works with:
- <path-password>
- <logon-interrupt-password>

To get the clear text password, just do:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
python wpkg-pass.py -c '<ciphered text>'
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
