That wasn't what I intended to convey. My point was that there are two 
versions of KMail. A new one based on components that allow alternative user 
interfaces for different types of workflows and the traditional one.

The latter is as stable as it has always been, perfectyl suited for people 
with loads of email. It is, if I remember correctly, even available as a 
company maintained [1] Enterprise build.
