--- Comment #2 from Jakub Jelen <jjelen at redhat.com> ---
I was discussing this bug with Fabiano yesterday. The easiest way would
be to ignore gnome-keyring, but if we would support this in openssh,
even gnome-keyring can use this approach with list of sockets instead
of overwriting the variable existing.

About the patch, I asked Fabiano to write also some documentation, but
two remarks:
 * First hunk in patch is wrong, because it remove "for" from "socket
for ssh-add to work" (there is the catch about the .Nm)
 * The other hunks should contain at least the note about delimiter in
the list. For example "If the variable contains a list of sockets
separated by colon, the first functional socket will be used."

Otherwise the patch is quite nice and small and I believe it can be
useful feature for other tools and integration.
