I would also very much appreciate this feature.

Struggling with the same problem over here.
It is pretty trivial to setup a script to get credentials from the keyring and put it in the environment. (e.g. OS_USERNAME)
However it is still not really secure because the password will be in plaintext readable in the environment of the shell.
Integrating keychain support into the tools would be really nice :)
