iirc most, if not all, of the keyring code can be merged without
changing api. There are some trivial changes that enable error
notifications on async keyrings, but they are unused and I don't see
much values in them. Maybe I will try to find some motivation to look at
it again.

There are also questions on how the keyring ops should be implemented in
a struct hidden world. I'd hate to see every *Ops structure to be turned
into GObjects. I think I have a way to deal with them if the goal is to
enable better extensibility rather than let's-hide-all-the-structs
