Well the people which would like to sniff the network are probably few
block away. They _do_ have time to sniff for few hours. As software are
available to do that without having to know anything except few C
skills, I would think it's quick easy to do.

Someone doesn't ?

Probably, but people could still sniff the network. For web you don't
care anyway, except if you use regular pop, which send clear password.
