you lose designation of your favorites, your sents, your templates, and your 
drafts. however, when i used mysql and later mariadb, i lost all of these 
twice a week when i blew away the database and let akonadi rebuild it. now 
with postgres i only lose these every two weeks. so, an improvement.

if there's a stress test kit for akonadi i'd like to see it, and add test
