ok, that seems to be the 'akonadi-autostart' here too :)
(removed the clock widget from system-tray, logged out and in again: no 
akonadi running as before ...).
so, as stated before, probably no more escape from akonadi, in the near future 
but to comment again on the OP's doubts about ressources/performance:
I don't think akonadi is a big problem here.
what really makes kde4 nearly unusable on (certain) older machines, is 
graphics hardware/drivers, e.g. my old 2 GHz AMD desktop with sis onboard 
graphics is practically unusable (creepy as hell) with kde4, whereas it runs 
3,5 very well.
