Any of you OS X guys use skype?

Recently and intermittently, I've been getting this message from skype:

"Skype wants to use your confidential information stored in "skype" in your keychain. Do you want to allow access to this item?"

Seems dubious, you guys know what's going on?

It wants to use your credentials to log in. They're stored in your keychain.

Given that Skype is now owned by Microsoft, your caution is not unwarranted.
