no. It's too complicated i think. I know that an entry exist in
bugzilla about this topic, but MArcel (other lead digiKam developer)
is not favorable to drop Face Management feature using optional

After all, as it's said, if there are crashes, there are only located
to Face Management tool. Do use it...

But as i said previouly, now i know the source of the problem.

- It's a packaging problem.
- It's an UPSTREAM dysfunction fully relevant of OpenCV library.

See my story in this bugzilla comment :


This problem must be urgently reported to OpenCV team, and problem
must be fixed...

I also fixed a lots of code into libkface to obtain a more robust Face
management background interface for KDE. libkface is the shared lib
used by digiKam to play with face management and all OpenCV API are
called in this library.

So, i can said that future will be really more stable about Face Management...
