mysql crypt custom-field encrypt()

I was trying to create a custom field to use the mysql encrypt() function on some data I wanted to store in the DB. initcrash on IRC pointed me to this code which I butchered as best as my little brain could. Amazingly enough I got it working (thanks to a couple answers from initcrash).

If anyone can clean this up that would be great. I'm also trying to figure out how I can a) create password reset link in the admin interface for this field without displaying the field or b) decrypt it so that the password field is pre-populated with the decrypted password. Otherwise it is submitting the encrypted string as a new password.

Anyways, I'm only a week or two into Django with no python experience so any suggestions are very welcome.

Hope this helps someone!
