I think we are quite near to one another.

Actually I also think that redoing Akonadi from scratch with the lessons 
learned is a good idea. Fixing it all in place may just be more difficult 
than restarting from a clean base.

I just thought you were against some kind of Akonadi framework for 
handling stuff in the background in general, but it seems you were not.

As for feedback to developers: I am not sure whether many of them read all 
the mails here.
