I just recently made use of libgnome-keyring via python-keyring for a 
console application I wrote.  I thought it was quite handy to be able 
to add this ability and save a little effort for something I use 
regularly for work (a paste app).  Like git's use, my usage of the 
keyring libraries was entirely optional and falls back gracefully to 
other methods.  The cost in code and time would be far greater to make 
that optional bit a plugin or a subpackage.  It was definitely not 
worth my time to save < 300k of disk for the mythical system I might 
want to install where I try to trim down the minimal install even 

We can stop talking about git using libgnome-keyring now, right? :)
