Why not make it still possible? I see no benefit in retyping password
when copying profiles. IMO profile should contain all data user wants it
to store (ie. also list of passwords). Anyway do the libsecret supports
KDE right now? If it doesn't we could probably cut password store
support by this change for KDE users or implement another kwalletd

I think storing master password in system keyring manager is making
things more loosely coupling. In case system keyring manager doesn't
provide master password then we fallback to user input of master
password. In case we saved all passwords to keyring and for some reason
keyring won't be available users wouldn't have a change to have they
passwords pre-filled.
