We did the official switch for kdelibs and koffice already. If you think kdepim
is ready for cmake, simply copy kdelibs' Makefile.cvs over to kdepim, to
disable unsermake compilation.

However it's usually a good idea to check that you didn't forget to install anything
compared to the old build system, which is easier to do while both build systems
can be used. On a fast machine, compile kdepim with both, and diff the installed output;
this is what Laurent did in many modules, with the results in a file named
cmake-missing-install-files.txt in the toplevel of the module; no such file in kdepim though.

So IMHO disabling unsermake in any module is OK now, but is best done after 
checking that everything is getting installed, or least listing the things that 
are not installed yet and will need to be. This will surely include docs since
that's not done yet.
