Not really helpful here, but OS X does prompt you for your password
when installing updates.  Presumably so that they can do some sudo
action behind the scenes to apply said updates.  I'm comfortable with
this, especially if we go down the road of adding the first user to
sudo at install time.

Does gnome-keyring have a sensible timeout?  If I left my workstation
for a period of time and forgot to enable the screensaver, can anybody
access my keyring contents, or cause something to be authenticated via
my keyring?
