           Summary: An interface for quering passwords/login information is
           Product: Telepathy
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: telepathy-spec
        AssignedTo: telepathy at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: sjoerd at luon.net


  Currently telepathy only allows one to set passwords at the initial request
  a connection.. Sometimes it's preferred to not save your password in account
  information though. So a UI must determine before the connection is requested
  if it should ask the user for a password. Which is easy enough if the 
  well-known password field is required. But for other protocols it might be
  that whether or not a password is required can only be determined at
  time (IRC springs to mind as a protocol with optional passwords)

  Such an interface would also be usefull when joining password protected MUCs
