I can't comment on the bad words, but it certainly isn't a time-wasting

No, the kwallet developers didn't do that.

kcontrol is a completely separate app - and was obsolete already in 8.04.  
The kwalletmanager package does include a file, which is the 
module for kcontrol/System Settings, but it could just as easily be plugged 
into some other program (a kcm-part for konqueror, for instance?).

Just removing it via synaptic would have done the job - but then you have to 
jump through a bunch of hoops nicely handled by kwallet.  Heck, we even 
taught Steven how to use Kwallet productively, but it's linux, and you're 
always welcome to do things the hard way if you want.
