Yes, it's really a pity noone feels able to help you.

Well, superficially your patches and their reasoning look good and elaborated 
IMHO. So I would propose to you to just apply for an SVN account now [GSA]. 
Then keep posting patches to kde-core-devel and  if noone reacts you just go 
and commit them yourself. If your patches are really evil at least then you 
will get reactions from people caring for KWallet a little. ;) Until then you 
are just doing things right :)

You best reference to this my proposal in your account application.
