Reason for closing:  Implemented
Additional comments about closing:  Removed gnome-keyring from libgnome-keyring dependencies. Added to seahorse, which is the only thing with a suggested dependency according to the official GNOME module set. gnome-keyring is part of the GNOME group, let's see where this breaks for some users.

People can choose not to use a keyring implementation to save their password.

Distributions such as Ubuntu, Fedora and Debian do not make libgnome-keyring depend on gnome-keyring.

Similar situations can be found with libcups not depending on cups and dbus-core not depending on dbus.
