I'm the one who keeps bugging Vishesh about the performance loss due to all 
that DBus traffic. Every time I select a message in kmail, it makes DBus calls 
to register temporary resources with the watcher, which slows down kmail 

If you're sure that no apps depend on the auto-updating behavior, then by all 
means, let's disable that altogether, as soon as possible.
