[Mageia-dev] Network-manager secret storage

I'm a bit puzzled to discover than network-manager stores its 
connections configuration both under 
/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ and as legacy ifcfg files under 
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. Given than both are available 
system-wise (by opposition to an user home directory), I don't 
understand the purpose of such split.

Moreover, in both cases, secrets are stored in plain-text... I was quite 
convinced than gnome keyring was supposed to be used, at least for 
user-specific connections. Am I completly wrong ?
