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.

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.
