It looks great! One thing I'd add is that it seemed to inherit the old 
kwalletmanager size, which is too small for the new layout; perhaps ignore the 
old saved size and prefer sizeHint if the old size is < sizeHint (or just have 
a kconf_update script which removes the old saved size?)

P.S. For those wondering how best to review in the face of the source code 
being moved around, try this git command line:

$ git diff -M -C origin/master..origin/ui-refactor

-M tries to find renames, -C tries to find copies (not that there should be 
any here).

If you just want to see a summary you can put add --stat (but you might want 
to try --stat=120 to use more width, other you'll only see partial renames)
