Looking closer it seems you're actually using kwallet as a backend in QtKeyChain, so I guess I'd rather have to extract the relevant code from QtKeyChain and patch it into kwallet.

Great, thanks - that might save us a bit of work :)
Your patch is not currently in MacPorts, but that doesn't mean you never filed it on trac.macports.org ...

I'm CC'ing this on the kde-mac ML as there was a clear interest in having KeyChain integration included upstream.
