Please ensure you store the main copy of the data somewhere outside
Nepomuk. In a large number of user support scenarios, especially those
involving an inconsistent Akonadi, it is necessary to destroy the
Nepomuk database to ensure ghost entries do not cause problems.

If KDE Telepathy uses Nepomuk as it's primary store of contacts
information, it will make user support for other areas of KDE which
are still maturing much harder.

There are also a number of users who have Nepomuk disabled, or a
system where Nepomuk is broken (due to old configurations, corrupt
databases, and the like).
