More minor, but it also needs some basic HIG padding/packing/label/etc
cleanup. I'm sure this could be done in the 2.8 timeframe though
(though it doesn't use glad which'll make it that much harder,

More broadly, I don't really want to add an applications menu item for
"Keyring Manager". It would be good to figure out a standard way to
integrate this with keyring using applications? And perhaps the main
interface could just be a click away from the "Enter password for key"

Also, its sort of bewildering when you first open this that it asks
you over and over for the password for different keyring items!
