There are three reason:
- you do not ship mk4dump that is useful for diagnostic
- you duplicate code and this is bad for a maitenance point of view
- upstream is more willing to help if we can use directly the library
as a shared object and get some bug case using dump utility

I loved kmail using plein old mbox file as strorage but I really
dislike to store in sql engine.
