Oh wow, I did not know it could do this transparently. Thanks, I will 
have a look at that. I can update the docs to reference this approach as 
well if it works out.

This means that operators who prefer to keep their KA configuration in source control must have some mechanism for securing that, as it is unencrypted. What does everybody think about storing Ceph keyring secrets in passwords.yml instead, similar to how SSH keys are handled?
