Keyring management

In libsecret keyrings are called 'collections'. This is the same lingo as the underlying Secret Service DBus API. Keyrings are no longer identified by simple keyring names. Normally applications just use the default keyrings and these are identified by the aliases SECRET_COLLECTION_DEFAULT and SECRET_COLLECTION_SESSION. It is also possible to identify collections by their DBus object paths.
