I would think this would be the case on many distros.

You probably need to be smarter. Just because you can load the
interface, doesn't mean that it is use.

For example, I use a KDE desktop environment, so I would expect
kwallet to be used. However, the gnome keyring is loadable, yet

It should either be smart about where there is data (which probably
triggers the user to unlock an empty or un-initialized key safe), or
make it user configurable.

The alternative is to force the distro packages to be only be built
with only the "right" option available. Yuck.

Just when you thought it was finished... :-)
