Last year, the GNOME Keyring and KDE Wallet developers have agreed a
common API, called Secret Services, to access their password
repositories. This API is D-Bus based, see

I have written a small package, secrets.el, which uses this API to read
and write passwords. It is tested with GNOME Keyring 2.29.90; a public
KWallet implementation is under work. Ted Zlatanov has volunteered to
integrate it into auth-sources.el as new backend, and I intend to use it
also in Tramp.

Are there objections to install it under lisp/net/secrets.el?

Best regards, Michael.
