evidently there was a failure somewhere, and i'll take responsibility for it 
because probably i should have noticed this was going to be merged imminently 
and, as with all the other feature addition requests to the KDE/4.7 branch, 
said something.

this functionality should not have been put into KDE/4.7. it should not have 
been put into kderuntime, either. all of the code should have appeared in a 
git repository of its own, lib and runtime requirements together.

i do recall writing emails about this in previous threads requesting reviews 
on ksecretservice. what pains me is that one of the KSS authors was at the 
Randa meeting and well aware of what work is happening in kdelibs. :/

in any case, i'm not sure how to proceed from here. i don't want to demotivate 
you, and i would love to see KWallet start to use this ASAP (though with 
ksecretservice as a separate repo, i don't see how).

what i would have suggested, had i been more on the ball on this one, is to 
put it in the frameworks branch (as this is definitely frameworks 5 work at 
this point in time) in a directory of its own, lib+runtime requirements. since 
it does not rely on libkdeui, it can be built before libkdeui even right now 
and kwallet can then use it.

later when libkdeui is separated out into its own repo, then ksecretservice 
can then follow as well.

as i said, i'm not sure how to proceed in a way that will work best for those 
who have done so much hard work up to this point. please advise what would be 
workable for you and those working on ksecretservice, taking into 
consideration is you can what our goals are with frameworks 5 in terms of 
delivery schedule and focus.

thanks ...
