Yes and no.

It does work separately, but I think it requires KDEPIM 2 (aka of KDE SC 
4.6 or higher) to be usable.

As far as I read it still doesn´t work in all cases upto KDE SC 4.8.3. 
Some fixes are done for KDE SC 4.9. That said I never tested it myself. 
That is just what I gathered from reading kdepim and kdepim-users mailing 

I already excluded my mail directory anyway, cause until when I need to 
search for me I use what the KMail 1 as of KDE SC 4.4.11 currently 
included in Debian has to offer.

So I think the real question is: Do you currently use desktop search to 
find mail as files on harddisk? If not, I would exclude the mail directory. 
If you use it however for something you do not like the current search 
function in KMail 1 that has to scan the indexes and possibly mails during 
search, I recommend to keep the mail directory included until you got 
KDEPIM 2 packages and the search stuff in KMail 2 works to your 
satisfaction. Then I would keep the mail indexer disabled until you 
installed the first KDEPIM 2 version.

Thats at least from what I understood so far.
