No, sorry, that is a misunderstanding based on missing context :)

The GSOC idea referenced below is not about data at all, it is about state.

Akonadi state information and control works via D-Bus, so it would be possible 
to do a client for that without linking to libakonadi-kde.

This was just brought up as an option, since Plasma/workspace development and 
KDEPIM libs development are currently not using the same Qt version and 
potentially will not during the GSOC period.
