Seahorse is on track to replace gnome-keyring-manager 
<http://lwn.net/Articles/218548/>, and seems to do most (if not all) of 
the same stuff as GPA too. If you need to have more than one of those 
programs installed, that's a problem with the programs, not with the 
default menu layout.

If SELinux needs any GUI outside of Nautilus's Properties windows, 
that's probably a flaw in SELinux.
