The directory i am referring to doesn't exist but if it did, it would be
something like ~/kontact and below that there would be links to other folders
like ~/.local/share/.local-mail.directory that make up the whole kontact
package (data and config files) so just copying/moving ~/kontact does the
whole job in one swoop.
