The API keys are public and can easily be obtained on the internet. They
have been public for a long time now, if I understood correctly.

Also, they can be provided by environment variables, instead of being baked
into the package by us. So, uses wanting sync functionality could use chrome
keys at their own risk by just providing a few env vars.
