I CCed Mozilla developers because this project would enable them to use this
daemon for storing their secrets in a secure manner as well (HTTP
authentication, login form data, mail client passwords) - at least on
platforms where a daemon implementing the spec is available. Another bonus is
that - using a common storage scheme - the secrets would be available cross-
browser and thus benefitting users who don't only use Konqueror, Ephiphany,
Arora, FireFox, ... but switch between browsers.
There are related user requests in both Mozilla's and KDE's bugtracker.
