Being friendly and poking a bit to people on irc made one come up with a 
partly patch. Now, creating new dIMAP-accounts in kmail is disabled thru the 
user interface.

It is, although, still possible to create dIMAP accounts if you hand-edit the 
configuration files. You need to be more skilled than normal to create your 
config files yourself. For those who really want it, removing the patch and 
rebuilding kmail would be easier.

THis means that there still might need to be found some solution for existing 
dIMAP configurations.

I don't know if creating a warnbox on kmail startup saying "You are using 
dIMAP - this might eat your data - please change to IMAP." would suffice.
Or maybe a debconf note on upgrade ?

But here is the patch; thanks to pinotree.
