There is a big difference between providing integration with KDE technologies 
such as KIO and a single KDE application, namely Konqueror. It is easy for 
people, including KDE developers, to simply confuse KDE wide configuration as 
being Konqueror specific because frankly that is probably the only place where 
they encountered these options. Things like the cookiejar and user-agent 
configurations come to mind. Anyhow, kdewebkit does not and will not depend on 
any settings that are specific to a single application.

There is no need for that at all. Integration with KWallet will be provided in 
kdewebkit at some point in the future...
