Why does the installer not offer to import my Safari passwords?

Safari now stores its passwords in the "Local Items" keychain. Unfortunately, this keychain isn't stored as ~/Library/Keychains/*.keychain like the rest of the keychains. It's stored as ~/Library/Keychains/*/keychain-2.db, which is a SQLite database containing mostly encrypted data. Apple's SecKeychain routines cannot access this data, so we cannot import from it. We are unable to override Apple's obscuring of these passwords. 

Many users have come up with some solutions to move around this limitation and they are available online. One that we have tested is here: https://gist.github.com/rmondello/b933231b1fcc83a7db0b
