tramp and org-jira do.  if i use one of them first thing in a fresh
emacs, i'm prompted to decrypt ~/.authinfo.gpg.  and i recently wrote a
mathematica shell script that had to access an internal web server with
authentication, so i wrote a little authinfo parser for it to avoid
storing my password in the code.
