 One the one hand, GSettings

 On the other hand, users...

But on the third hand, :) GNOME has an increasingly beautiful┬╣ passwords
and account management interface in the Passwords and Encryption Keys
tool provided by Seahorse; my understanding is that the APIs underneath
it are mature too, though I can't speak to that.

Could that store be of any help? Irrespective of the I want to move
my .evolution with cp [and isn't that what backup/restore is actually
for?], surely it's better to centralize credential management in the
place that other GNOME apps are using.

Epiphany) storing their username/password credentials there.
