It would be nice if we had a secure password store backend.

This could be based on gnome-keyring, although I'm not
sure if that's a public API yet. I will find out.

    Not a bug but a feature request.

    Quotation from the README of the gnome-keyring debian package:

    The library libgnome-keyring is used by applications to
    integrate with
    the gnome keyring system. However, at this point the library
    hasn't been
    tested and used enought to consider the API to be publically
    exposed. Therefore use of libgnome-keyring is at the moment
    limited to
    internal use in the gnome desktop. However, we hope that the
    gnome-keyring API will turn out useful and good, so that
    later it
    can be made public for any application to use.

    So we have to wait.
