The password can't be decrypted; it's a secret to everyone. Instead,
store the encrypted password and compare user entries with that. During
development, do something like this:
ask password "Enter the password:"
set the cPswd of this stack to it
After that, you would compare the user's entry to the cPswd of the stack
to see if they match.
