Currently I have only found one simple password manager: pwsafe. It can be used from command line, can work with X clipboard and uses good cryptography I think. But it is not supported now and it's code depends on readline, autotools, written in C++ and consists of one .cpp file. As I can see suckless projects mostly works with X11 in the unix way. pwsafe also do some trick with X11: it puts password into clipboard and clears it after you put password somewhere with middle-click. So if someone there understands both cryptography, X11 and UNIX well it can be a good idea for new suckless project. Maybe code can be simplified by switching to another database structure not compatible with PasswordSafe.
