wallet without password

Is there anyway to get the wallet working without requiring a password. This is really annoying as applications are integrating with wallet I am always being asked for password.

Yes, I think that's possible since KDE 3.4

George Staikos didn't like it but in the end implemented it due to huge amounts of users requesting it.

Okay, I did figure it out (simply change the password to blank and it no longer asks for a password -- at least smb4k doesn't).

I think it would be good if each application would request passwords from a different wallet, since some of my passwords are not very sensitive, whereas others might be...

...though I don't see the problem with a empty password. The user's files are in theory protected and if you want extra security you could use an encrypted partition.
