Just in case anyone missed a major point, Pidgin is a GTK app and *not* 
a gnome app.

I've seen resistance previously to put gnome-keyring usage into the 
core. I believe the reason there's resistance, apart from the obvious 
one stated above, is that the 'better' solution is as casey states. One 
can then code a plugin that then has it's own crazy dependencies.

(notadev either)
