That's why I wouldn't use it on a laptop, and perhaps not even at work.
Here at home, however, nobody else sits behind my computer, so it would make
perfect sense to having to enter a password exactly once, when logging in to
the system, and use that password for all other auth.

I've never thought about that option :)
To be honest, on a desktop where nobody else sits behind it, I might. In the
cases where I wouldn't use KWallet (laptops, work) I wouldn't.
