So what? You don't get my point, so here I go again

Xfce uses GTK+2 and that's okay.
Xfce does not supoprt GTK+3 except in GTK+3 and cannot be built against 
GTK+3 and that's okay too.

But, Xfce DOES NOT conflict with GTK+3 apps. GTK+3 CAN BE INSTALLED 
alongside GTK+2 and there is no conflict in that!

GTK+3 is just a toolkit and does not conflict with GTK+2 in any way.

I still don't get it why old and obsolete version of gnome keyring 
should be mentioned when new one can perfectly work with Xfce. You can 
even install whole GNOME environment and still use Xfce without any 

Sorry for using capital letters, but I don't like explaining the same 
thing many times.
