KF5 kwallet, kwalletd and wallet manager questions

Now that frameworks splitting is almost done ;-) with some people even
running KF5-based sessions on their systems, I'd like to plan kwallet
porting and integration. BTW, I'd like also to announce that I agreed
with Michael Leupold to take over the maintainership of KWallet and I'm
now committed to do that. I also plan to add new features to kwallet, as
some of you may remember from our Randa discussions. But I'll make
another announcement(s) regarding these new features and ksecretsservice.

Here are my questions about kwallet in KF5:
* what tier will kwallet end-in? Note that kwallet.h is included only by
khtml, whose tier is not yet defined

* AFAIK, frameworks should be independent and self-contained. kwallet
depends on kde-runtime/kwalletd. This component should be detached from
kde-runtime sources and attached inside kwallet/src/kwalletd, preserving
history if possible. I can handle this task if that's OK for you (Aron,
David, Kevin?)

* Another piece of software related to kwallet is KWalletManager from
kdeutils. I think that component should also be detached from kdeutils
and attached under kwallet/src/manager. I can also handle this task if
that's OK (Aron, David, Kevin but also Raphael?)

* kwallet is now in staging ; should I wait for it to go to it's final
tier? I can do this tier adjusting changing task and I'd also like to
start these tasks as quick as possible.

Thanks for reading and I'd be grateful for a quick reply on these topics.
