Yes.  If you create a <mount> section for each mountpoint, you can specify 
a password to use.  An example is given in the sample config file.

My suggestion is to set your global source password to someting only you 
know and don't give it to anyone except maybe people you trust as they will 
be able to make any mountpoint with such a password.  Maybe it would be 
useful to be able to disable this?  Anyway, then specify a <mount> section 
for each mountpoint you want to use and give a password in each one.

Let me know if you need any further help with this.
