OK, I've sent patches to PR.

As suggested, .warning was removed, option description improved and 
KEYRING will force PAM.

Like above, gnome-screensaver has similar .warning, but because of 
partially broken pam support, the logic is reversed: lack of pam will 
disable keyring.
Also I've introduced some anti foot-shooting measures until the problem 
is fixed, so users of g-s won't end up with broken setup by selecting 
wrong options.
Maybe options should be hidden behind GNOME_SCREENSAVER_WITH_BROKEN_PAM 
conditional ?
