> Add the ability to store connection passwords in a password-protected keystore.
> At the moment, connection passwords are stored alongside other connection parameters
(like host or port) in the "connections.xml" file.
> This file is not encrypted and passwords are then stored in plain text and visible to
anyone.
> While it's very handy because the passwords are always remembered and the users doesn't
have to type them anymore, it would be useful to have a way to store those passwords in a
password-protected keystore.
> This keystore would need to be unlock when accessing a connection password for the first
time.
