Installing password.el will hopefully lead to several changes in Gnus.
We could make imap.el, sieve*.el, pgg*.el, nntp.el, pop3.el (?),
canlock (?), smime.el (?), webmail.el (?), mail-source.el (?), all use
the new password interface in password.el.

It is stretching to definition of "bug fixes" to apply the same
changes to Gnus 5.10.

However, maybe you are right, and we should not update Gnus in Emacs
to use password.el just yet.  Instead, we should fix this in Gnus CVS
HEAD, and then Emacs CVS wait for Gnus 5.13 to get the stable version
of these patches.

On the third hand, perhaps Gnus 5.13 will happen before the next major
Emacs release?  I'm not sure what the plan is.
