No. The memory keystore is helpless here because in practice VLC will pretty
much always start preparsing before opening the media, and thus always fail
under that design.
AFAICT, it is intended that we don't ask the user for credentials while
preparsing. That's *not* to say that we don't ask the user to unlock their
password wallet. Same as browsers do, really.
