It's a NSS/PSM patch, so that would be Brian Smith. But I'd have some of
the same concerns he's noted in previous comments.

In general, I'd say that (1) the existing master password stuff is a
giant mess that doesn't address modern threat models (2) we shouldn't
pile more onto that shaky foundation and (3) neither the master password
nor extensible nsILoginManagerStorage interface are very successful

So, I don't think we should invest time into supporting this, and it
would be better implemented as an add-on for those who want it. Sorry.
