--- Comment #16 from Anguo <kde_bugs at overshoot.tv> ---
I object. I am tired of the culture that pervades the whole KDE ecosystem
(plasma, konqueror, kwin, kmail, kdm, kuser, etc. etc.) in which regressions
are considered acceptable. 

Software is supposed to become more and more user-friendly and feature-rich
over time, not the other way around. 

I have been a faithful KDE user for 17 years, but I have fewer and fewer
reasons to stick with it, since many of the features that made me chose it over
other Desktop Environments are now removed or broken. 

The whole kmail2/akonadi is a disaster and I long for kmail1.

The regression discussed in this issue is another sad step in the same

I understand that developers freely provide their time and expertise for the
community, and that their time is limited so that not all bugs can be fixed nor
all feature request be implemented. But then why on earth should developers
waste their time removing features that were working perfectly?? What so much
time and effort wasted on the whole akodani framework which, as far as I am
concerned, only brought headaches, weird bugs that at times rendered kmail
almost completely unusable, without any apparent benefit in terms of features
or usability??

For me, the only acceptable fix to this issue is to revert the commit
referenced above.
