Yeah, there was a different keyring.el a while back.  I looked at it
briefly, it seemed to be about managing a keyring for your Palm or
something -- it appeared to have a mode for editing a list of

I wanted something a bit different; namely, I wanted code in Emacs
that would remember my various passwords for tramp, for TLS, etc.
Ideally I would enter a single password to unlock my keyring and then
various Emacs packages would know what password to use (assuming I'd
ever entered it) without my intervention.  I don't think the old
keyring.el did that.

Anyway, converting various Emacs packages looks like a fair amount of
work.  So I thought I'd see what other folks think before attempting
it.  So far the results aren't encouraging :}
