Would it be possible to get a name-change on seahorse? It's a great
utility, but the name "seahorse" doesn't do anything at all to indicate
what the program does.

If a user is looking for a way to manage their keyring, how would they
ever know to install a package called "seahorse"?

Is there a really compelling reason why it couldn't just be renamed to
something like gnome-keyring2?
