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.
