Note: We might be changing this concept to use the device password system and not the Mozilla system. Kinda like the OS X keyring

Allow users to (optionally) encrypt saved passwords with a master password, and prompt for the master password before auto-filling saved passwords (just like desktop Firefox).

Users who use master passwords on desktop Firefox could then sync passwords to Fennec without a big reduction in their security. This would also be an advantage for Fennec over other mobile browsers, and fits in with Mozilla's privacy positioning.
