dunno if it is "critical" but recovery of passwords is an awesome feature. in 
addition to using it this way myself, i've heard several times from our users 
that it's saved their butt in the past when they forget a password, but use 
the manager to look up what they used elsewhere on the same website in the 

the current UI is not particularly optimized for that, or for storing custom 
data, but i think it should probably move more in that direction over time, 
and become far less geekified by default; the tree is awesome but that should 
probably be an advanced view. i don't see that happening without a 
maintainer, of course, and i particularly don't see *that* happening with it 
in kdeutils.

that said, my biggest concern about moving it to kdebase is the lack of active 
maintainership. it's one of pmax's babies and we all know how ludicrously 
busy he is these days.
