My question is what does this extra dependancy give us apart from extra complexity?

I can't see any enhancement in security with this method?

I see that keystoneclient is already doing an "import keyring" and catching the exception if it's not there. I can certainly do something similar, but it seems like it would simplify things if we did just have keyring as a regular hard dependency. You don't have to use it, but it's there if you want it.
