Re: Added Gnome keyring Support

Hi Nick,

Wow. Thanks for this contribution, its implementation is certainly
very interesting. I will have a look over it in the next few days, and
have a think about the best way this could be integrated into Conduit.

Whats interesting is that you have raised two issues
1) We should store passwords in keyring
2) Its stupid making the user enter their username and password
multiple times for one service

The Keyring class you created is a good first step at solving this. If
you have time, would you mind attaching your work as a patch against so that we can track
modifications to it.

The confusing thing to think about is how to fit this into the
existing settings model, i.e. in such a way that its easy for people
who write dataproviders to get this stuff to happen automatically.
