Re: keyring manager

That's excellent -- all I want is not to be futzing with entering a
password in that keyring, however that is implemented.  When is this
planned to be released?

Nope!  As you say, that's a security issue.  Instead you'll be able to
"publish" a configuration to system settings so that it's available to
everyone on the system (or just you if it's single-user) and therefore
available for NetworkManager to use when the computer boots up, not just
when you log in.
