pw: command line password util

pw is a command line util to store and retrieve passwords from the Gnome keyring.

The focus is on providing a clean and easy to use interface for storing and retireving web passwords.

$ pw set test username_test
Enter password:
Password: <keyring password>
Saved as 29

$ pw find test
Password: <keyring password>
29  test    username_test
Password for test copied to clipboard

It uses gkeyring, the eventual goal is to remove this dependency.
