I looked and that's indeed very useful.  If it's put in a library, I'd
use credential_read() and credential_write() in my netrc credential
helper.  But I would formalize it a little more about the token names
and output, and I wouldn't necessarily die() on error.  Maybe this can
be merged with the netrc credential helper's
read_credential_data_from_stdin() and print_credential_data()?

Let me know if you'd like me to libify this...  I'm happy to leave it to
Matthieu or Michal, or anyone else interested.
