I'd like to move pretty much all password caching outside Emacs so I'm
fine with such plans. Do your plans include mail-source-password-cache

For example, in my system Gnus's mail-sources variable is set to fetch
mail from a server. The password is stored in ~/.authinfo.gpg but then
stored in mail-source-password-cache variable:

    (("server:login:nil" . "password"))

I'd like to get rid of that too.
