Thank $DEITY the other products do not, or they would be bloatware in the same 
way Kmail has become.

For a test, install any distribution without KDE, then try to install Kmail, 
and see how many Mb you have to install....

Given that most users only need a simple email client, with attached 
addressbook, what about a Kmail-lite, that would be smaller, faster and 
simpler, for those users who do not feel the need to have a complete 
petrochemical works for preparing a cup of tea....
