Sure, KWallet is one such client.

In 3.5 this functionality is extremely spoofable and the only reason its 
being sent in the first place is because its something the user wants to 
So, basically I see that as the same thing as the handshake needed for 
encryption in that is had better be secure and correct or else there is 
no need to do it.

The positive part about using dbus is that we don't have to rely on KDE 
(re)inventing the solution, as I'm pretty sure that ones it exists there 
will be more that will use it.
