What is the added benefit of sending MD5 hashes instead of plain-text
passwords? I mean, the MD5 hash will be the same for the same password,
I hope that Yahoo has implemented something more complicated that that,
otherwise it is plain pointless.

THEY don't even cache, or pass, your password. Like all secure programs,
they store, and transmit, an MD5 Sum.
