FWIW, kdepim 4.6.0 (and thus the new kmail) is in the gentoo main tree 
but keyworded ~arch (testing, similar to rawhide or cooker or...), where 
I have a feeling it will stay for some time (likely quite beyond the 
customary 30 days minimum, if kde continues to make kdepim 4.4 updates 
available to work with 4.7, it's very possible gentoo won't stabilize a 
newer kdepim until late in the main kde 4.7 cycle or even 4.8), so it's 
not like gentoo is rolling it out as stable yet either.

Gentoo also has overlays that carry the pre-release stuff, current as of 
a couple days ago the 4.6.80, 4.6.90 pre-4.7 snapshots as well as builds 
that follow kde's live-vcs (git/svn), following 4.6 branch, following the 4.7 branch, and 9999 following trunk/head.  But 
that stuff is not only in the overlay instead of the main tree, but hard-
masked, just in case anyone (like me) follows the overlays for earlier 
release builds, before they reach the main tree generally 3 days to a 
week later.  So even if they've added the early-kde overlay, People have 
to deliberately want that stuff and unmask it in ordered to get it.
