Wondering if anybody has any more details on the new feature just released 'Stored Credentials'?  How it works?

I noticed there are now inputs for Username and Password in the settings of a service but whenever I put some in I get the message 'Valid service credentials not fully specified.'  How do these Stored Credentials differ from sharing options we already have?
