GtkSecureEntry has been removed from pinentry.

The coupling to secmem is why I propsed this for pinentry not for GTK+ itself. 

Since GTK1 and Qt pinentries also depend on secmem, so secmem could would have
to move into a lib first or this would be duplicated between GTK+ and pinentry

Since this is security related code not having that many copies around would
really be nice.

Too much mainenance work.  It is also closely coupled to the secmem stuff.  You
better ask the GTK folks to add such a widget.

I'd be nice to have GtkSecureEntry in a separate library so more Gtk
applications can benefit from it's security features. I ended up copying
over the code to krb5-auth-dialog and it seems gnome-keyring took the
code from there too.
