I fully agree that it is not a serious policy violation. (I looked at
http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Developer#severities and misread that about
serious in severity.) My apologies!

Both your suggested solutions are fine with me!

If Evolution is not supposed (always) to work with a keyring manager (like
gnome-keyring (or kwallet for that (k/c)ase))) or it is not possible to
start gnome-keyring in KDE unless a huge effort is made then storing it in
a (plain text) file works as well for me.

If I want I can always choose to encrypt my /home/<user>/ dir if I want
encryption although the keyring solution would be the best if possible.

Best regards
