Review request for KSecretsService components

Please be advised three repostories need review before integration into 
the next release:
1. /kdereview/ksecretservice
2. kdelibs branch ksecretsservice
3. /kdereview/ksecrets

*1. /kdereview/ksecretservice*
The first one has several subdirectories. The only relevant one is the 
daemon subdirectory. Other directories contents was already moved to 
other repositories (see below).
This daemon directory contains the sources of the future 
It needs testing but it's quite usable.

*2. kdelibs branch ksecretsservice*
This is the API KDE applications will be supposed to use instead of 
KWallet class. Tools listed below already use this API.

Contains code depending on a configuration flag that directs calls to 
ksecretsserviced instead of kwalletd, via the new API.

*3. /kdereview/ksecrets*
Contains several tools in a less or more mature state:
a. kwl2kss - tool to import kwallet files to ksecretsservice,
b. ksecrets - tool to list the contents of a ksecretsservice collection 
(e.g. wallet),
c. kio - KIO slave in a just started state, intended to show collections 
in konqueror or dolphin,
d. secretsync - this was the tool I initially wanted to do for KWallet, 
but drought me into ksecretsservice :-)
It's half way implemented.

The mandatory components for next release would be 1, 2, 3 (a, b), the 
others may wait, but releasing them may cause no harm if communication 
is done right (I'll take care of that).

Thanks for your comments (any comments),
