That level of security isn't great, though. GPG keys are much more secure
than that password. What we would want for equivalent security in a web
interface is personal X.509 certificates.
I think it would be interesting to have that infrastructure in place, but
someone would need to build it (probably with some mechanism to bootstrap
GPG keys into X.509 certificates -- and be careful of expiration times and
figure out a good way to deal with revocation).
