It appears I spoke too soon. Instead of working on the kwallet
integration with JavaHL, I instead spent the weekend working on
JavaHL-related stuff for issue #3200, which is a candidate for 1.5, and
which I felt had higher priority. Sorry. :/

I can still look at the JavaHL/kwallet stuff, but it may be a few days
more. If somebody beats me to it, it won't hurt my feelings at all.
