There alre already well established solutions for password management
that tend to become widespread. We should provide KDE API for the main
one or two of them, and avoid re-inventing the wheel here. Users will
only be very happy if they can integrate their favourite password
manager with KDE.

The KDE API may compatible with KWallet's API, so existing application
won't need porting.
