Yup, if I have to type my password then I'm going to set it to
something short and memorable, same as everybody else. The more often

I have no idea how this fancy Kerberos works or integrates with GNOME,
but the above is a truism that stands the test of time.
One question: So, 6 months is long enough for you to use a longer
passphrase, but 1 week is not. Where is the line?
and Two suggestions:

gpg and files in a git repo. Then you fas password is just a 'pass -c
2. Use a passphrase you can remember. Isn't:
My FAS password is long, but I can always, always remember it.!
