If you're asking what I think you're asking, the answer is no -- MySQL user passwords are encrypted with the PASSWORD() function, which uses a one-way hash. That's what makes them secure. I still don't understand _why_ you need this.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
