This file is used instead of kwallet.cpp when cmake is invoked with

I've started to think that I might be able to implement support for
separate and KDE specific keychains rather than using the default
keychain as is currently the case. (And polluting it with not very
"native-looking" entries.)

about the future of KWallet. kwallet*.cpp have not changed from 4.12 to
4.13, but I saw something about migration in a recent blurb about the
next-gen frameworks, which suggest that what I'm doing right now might
be completely irrelevant for the kwallet feature (or its replacement) in
KDE5 ...

The current sources for kwallet are now in the KDE Frameworks
repositories. So you may want to make your contributions to that
repository. Have a look into frameworks/kwallet/src/api/KWallet if
you're using the kdesrc-build script to get your KF5 sources.
