I am also in favor of storing the master password in the keyring as it
seems the less intrusive approach and the most likely to land soon. It
might not be a perfect solution but it improves the usability of the
master password a lot. Besides once the harness is in place it will be
easier to change the behavior (to store a random password, add a salt or
whatever else). The only thing that we might want to change compared
with the existing patch (of which I'm reattaching a refreshed version
again) is probably in the UI part where we probably want the option to
be shown in the same dialog as the master password instead of on a
separate pop-up.

I've looked at the password manager log and it seems to me that Justin
Dolske comes up often both as a contributor and a reviewer so I'm
needinfo'ing him here as he's both a Firefox and Toolkit peer in the
hope he's the right person to ask. Justin could you have a look at the
approach we're taking here or point us to someone who could help out
with this?
