Seems to me that this could pave the way for pervasive authentication. When a user logs in (say with a some token) that could be stored in the session keyring. This would then be available for any subprocess (it's preserved over fork, clone, execve, etc) to authenticate itself to something else. Sort of like ssh-agent on steriods.
Or am I missing something important?
