I have since been informed that evolution is in the process of
implementing some kind of Unified Account Manager.  I haven't heard of
it until now, but it seems like it would be conflicting.  There are at
least three projects that need some of the same information.  The
secrets should be stored in gnome-keyring, but what is needed is a
frontend to enter this kind of stuff.  Christian Kellner said he
doesn't think About Me is the right place for it and I understand what
he's saying.  We probably all need to discuss it so completing
solutions aren't in play.
