Newer KDEPIM for Jessie


I think it would be good to have a newer KDEPIM + Akonadi into Jessie.

Why? The current akonadi 1.13 master branch together with kdepim, 
kdepimlibs, kdepim-runtime from 4.14 branches (as of 4.14.6/7) here runs 
better than *ever* before, including my most annoying bug

[Akonadi] [Bug 343114] gets stuck on one request that times out, kmail and 
akonadiconsole do not display any mail payloads anymore, stuck waiting

gone for good as well.

For the first time in years (!) I didn´t have to restart either Akonadi or 
KMail just to keep it running with *both* my private huge POP3 and smaller 
IMAP and my huge work IMAP setup with crappy IMAP server (Exchange) for a 
week or so (okay, with using the work IMAP for as most as long as a work 
day without logout/login). That said, I have no idea whatsoever what 
commit may contain the fix. But as the mentioned branches are for fixes 
anyway, they shouldn´t contain any major breakage. I didn´t see any 
regression at all so far, and I think I use quite a subset of KDEPIM 

Also due to the MySQL performance improvements, the load on the machine is 
way lower. Not perfect yet, but *much* better.

Compared with current akonadi 1.13 and kdepim 4.14.2 versions currently in 
sid, this is a *huge* improvement.

I personally will just self-compile things until newer stuff is available 
via unstable and experimental. But for all the users of KDEPIM in stable 
it would be highly beneficial to have the newer versions in the archive. 
And yes, I know, likely the only way at this late stage would be to 
retrofit them via backports.

I think for the experience of the stable users it would be highly
