Basically moving the code that does sending/receiving/saving/loading of emails 
out of KMail so it can be used independently.

A bit like mounting file systems into the local directory tree instead of each 
program having to disk layouts or remote file system protocols.

Main local storage is maildir directory tree, with support for mbox files and 
support for "mixed mode" directories (mbox folders inside a maildir tree).

Unlikely unless you upgrade to some experiemental version of your distribution 
or a pre-version of your distribution's "late 2011" version.
