Oops - thanks for pointing that out.  That page was removed only a day or two 
ago, and I didn't think of the impact on that page.  The link is repaired, now 
pointing to the new userbase Akonadi page.

Currently Akonadi is only used by KAddressBook.  Over the coming year you can 
expect to see other applications using it.  And one important point is that 
it's not KDE specific, even though it is KDE 'invented'.  Non-KDE applications 
can use it, and I'm pretty sure that as it matures they will.
