Unlock gnome-keyring without X (or without the GTK window)?

https://bbs.archlinux.org – I've installed mutt + offlineimap, with the help of brisbin's mutt config.However, I don't like putting passwords in plaintext, so I've set up my .offlineimaprc to read from gnome-keyring, using this Python script.This works well if I run "offlineimap -o -u quiet" at the command-line manually. But this also means that I can't put offlineimap in a cron job, the way pbrisbin (and many others) do. Nor can I unlock the keyring (and therefore open mutt) over ssh, even when I forward X (see below).The error message I get is:$Command '['gnome-keyring-query (HowTos)
