Those are configuration frameworks, not password stores. They aren't
designed to hold passwords in a secure way (encrypted, with the possibility
to use a passphrase for true encryption (without a passphrase, it's trivial
to reverse the obfuscation)) like KWallet and gnome-keyring are.

And adding yet another framework doesn't solve the problem of there being 2
competing frameworks (KConfig vs. GConf for configuration, KWallet vs.
gnome-keyring for password stores) at all, it makes it worse.
