[Python-modules-team] Bug#882164: doesn't allow empty password for keyring

Package: python-keyrings.alt
Version: 2.2-2
Severity: normal

Please allow empty passwords for the keyring; without this, it's impossible to
e.g. use python-keyring from any scripts that run in cron jobs. I don't
necessarily care about storing these encrypted.
