I'm mystified as to why there is no »no-op« version of Akonadi. It is a caching framework, so it should be straightforward to come up with an implementation that always returns a cache miss and/or falls back on the real data sources with no actual caching taking place. This would get rid of the »why do I need to run MySQL?« issue, among other things. I have kmail from KDE 4.6 running with Akonadi disabled, and it is plenty fast enough for me to not bother trying to get Akonadi to run properly. Akonadi with no caching shouldn't be a lot worse than what I have now.
Besides, if I were to develop Akonadi, a »no-op« cache would be the first thing I'd come up with, simply to be able to debug the rest of the framework.
