I've implemented creation of secrets via the Secret Service API in
auth-source.el. Could you, pls, check?

I will add support for this into Tramp. It doesn't create yet items, for
any backend.

Deletion isn't implemented for any auth-source backend yet. So I haven't
done it for the Secret Service API either, and I don't plan it for next time.

Best regards, Michael.
