This doesn't work.

As stated on IRC, gnome-keyring does not get any entropy which could be used as
a key.

E.g. there are fingerprint reader devices which return a simple 0/1 for
correct/wrong fingerprint.

In my opinion this is a feature request.

Having this said, Beta 4 seems to have a new bug which affects gnome-keyring
when using a fingerprint reader (cf. bug #441764).
