for what it's worth, the daemon mostly just speaks dbus (and the wire
protocol); the only exception is the OAuthClient class in
canonical.ubuntuone.storage.syncdaemon.main, which uses gnomekeyring
to get the oauth tokens. Similarly I think the systray applet only
gnome-specific thing is the keyring. And this is because, AFAIK, there
is no cross-desktop keyring api.
