Brilliant.

I've been using PwManager for years, but it seems to be time to switch.  I 
will look at KeePassX.  KWallet is a little different, I think.  It seems to 
be a place for KDE applications to stick passwords.  I use PwManager to 
stash passwords that I create (e.g., to access particular web sites) and it 
generates passwords for me to use.  If KWallet does these things, the 
functionality is well hidden.
