I was updating and old computer and I noticed that "gcr" support in nm-applet was disabled by default. Supposedly it's for:
- - gcr : Enable advanced certificate chooser, requires app-crypt/gcr
But, on a gnome setup, gcr is already installed by basic things like gnome-shell, hence, I think we should enable this by default. If we want to avoid gcr to be pulled on non-gnome setups, I would suggest to enable it in out gnome profiles then instead of inside the ebuild. What do you prefer?
I'd start with thinking if it should even be IUSE=gcr or maybe something else :)
Maybe "crypto"? :/
Yeah, I don't think the USE flag name is appropriate. Other than that, it should indeed be enabled by default in the gnome profile.
What I couldn't figure out for the name of the flag was the exact meaning of "advanced certificate chooser". Maybe it is not worth having this optional at all.

We can keep this for finding a better name... any ideas apart of "crypto"? :/
