Summary: plaintextpasswords.php page doesn't mention gnome-keyring

Initial Comment:
The http://gaim.sourceforge.net/plaintextpasswords.php page doesn't mention the 
support that gaim has for gnome-keyring. It probably falls into the "Store a 
password(s) behind a password" category.

FYI: A blogger, 
http://blogs.sun.com/darren/entry/gaim_password_storage_insecure, mentions 
additional scenarios where plain text passwords are a problem.

Oops, my mistake. I work for the JDS/GNOME group in Sun Microsystems. We
added support for gnome-keyring in our builds.
http://cvs.opensolaris.org/source/xref/jds/spec-files/trunk/patches/gaim-06-gnome-keyring.diff
If you are interested in the feature, I will make a note to ask the author
of the patch to submit it to you.

There is no mention of gnome-keyring support because gaim doesn't
currently have any support for gnome-keyring.
