OK.  I don’t use GNOME myself but I think the goal is for
‘gnome-service-type’ and ‘%desktop-services’ to provide something that
works out of the box, and that’s why I thought it might make sense to
have the keyring service as a default.

But anyway, I understand what you’re saying, so we can leave it as is
and we can always revisit it later if someone feels a need.
