Probably not, because gnome-keyring's PAM module isn't generally applicable
and shouldn't be used for all services.  You probably only want this module
used by gdm, gnome-screensaver, and maybe a handful of others - you don't
want the module triggering on every POP connection, web authentication, etc.
