The first one can deal with KMail's "mixed tree", i.e. when some folders are 
in mbox format and not maildir. It also has read-only support for KMail1's 
index files, for applying previously stored flags and tags.

Due to that it is not as optimized as the normal maildir resource yet.

An over-optmization in a component KMail uses for mail folder display. It 
results in no mails being requested from the resource.
Creating a message in such a folder should trigger a load of all others as 
well, or reload in Akonadiconsole.
