GnomeKeyring: not entering passwords

while looking for a possibility to help a user of subversion so he
does not need to type the server password all the time, i got hinted
to GnomeKeyring and seahorse. subversion offers to be compile with --
with-gnome-keyring option.

what we finally want to have is a one time prompt on the command line
(no gui available) after booting the operating system, or logging into
the user or starting some daemon to log into the keyring, and never
again. the goal is to have a continuous integration environment that
does not expose the passwords (easily) to the users of the server.

as i understood there are three pieces of software:
* GnomeKeyring daemon, allowing an application to store and retrieve
passwords
* GnomeKeyring manager, deprecated by
* seahorse, a gui application which allows to manage keys

would this be realistic using the GnomeKeyring daemon? i want to
include it for the http://opencsw.org subversion solaris build, and
wonder what additionally needs to be configured on the client side so
this works seamlessly.
