Summary: gnome keyring support

Initial Comment:
This is to suggest use of gnome-keyring for account passwrod data. 

This seems very important missing feature. Else user comfort to save passwords 
becomes prone to accidental exposures.

As a note to anyone looking to implement this: Hooks should be added to
allow plugins to store the password data. Then, a gnome-keyring plugin for
Gaim could be created. On systems without gnome-keyring, it could simply
refuse to load or something. This wouldn't be useful to people who need
compatibility with other operating systems, but for GNOME-only users, it
could be useful.

Wouldn't this make gaim OS-dependant?
Since the gnome keyring is a Linux-only feature, what about the Windows
users?
