I'm no db expert, but AFAIK, it should be possible to run multiple mysqld 
sessions, as long as they're configured to be entirely separate.  The 
problem I had was that akonadi was starting a session, then kde exiting 
without exiting the mysqld session it started, which upon kde restart, ran 
into the mentioned bug trying to reuse the same session.  But if it had 
been a totally unrelated session, running for some other app and perhaps 
even for another user, AFAIK it shouldn't have been an issue.

kaddressbook is working in 4.4; it's simply built on akonadi now, so if 
akonadi is broken, so is kaddressbook.  kmail will apparently likewise be 
built on akonadi for 4.5, but hopefully, most of the issues will be worked 
thru by then.
