Look at the discussion for bug 9113 for more on this.  nyc4bos, you can
voice your opinion there or on the Gnus mailing list.  The consensus so
far seems to be that we should allow in-memory auth-source storage for
users who don't want to set it up, and just cache the information until
Emacs exits, but we should prompt to make sure that's what they want.
