nbenn/secretr: Secure storage of user credentials

Using password protected services from R either requires repeated manual entry of user credentials which is cumbersome and precludes non-interactive application, or might often rely on insecure workarounds, such as plain-text storage. This package attempts to remedy this situation through use of OS services such as keychain on Mac OS X, or Gnome Seahorse on compatible Linux distributions.
