It uses the client interface like any other program out there to a *local* 
database. Currently, only mysql is supported.

Then please fix sqlite to be fast and deadlock free when accessed from multiple 
processes and threads.

I have several times approached mysql maintainers to make it possible to 
create a version that does not start a system daemon as well. Akonadi starts 
its own instance as user.

Nothing here is broken, so nothing to fix.

Oh well. Just take it to tech-ctte then. As said, Akonadi uses mysql-server 
and akonadi is here to stay.

Genius, I cannot boot the mailer, how does it work?

First of all from X-Windows you neither should debug a AGP system, nor should 
doubleclick the sendmail to overclock the URL of a 47X driver.
