Well, I just removed ksecretsservice from kdelibs and kderuntime (see 
latest mails exchanged with Kevin and Aaron). The code specific to it in 
KWallet is inactivated.
After the release, KWallet  code will have a plug-in support, loading if 
found the ksecretsservice daemon.
And for me this infrastructure was intended from the beginning to go 
inside the frameworks.
