Sorry Tom, didn't foresee all the implications when we flipped
akonadi backend sqlite -> mysql late(ish) in the cycle.
I'm of a mind to revisit this (again).
I'd recommend it. mysql is kind of a heavyweight requirement to have
underneath a desktop component: it raises the ante in terms of what has
to be installed and running, and in terms of required sysadmin-ish
know-how. (Does the average user have a clue how to configure mysql
securely, or even realize that it's not very secure out-of-the-box?
If there are multiple users on the machine, what about information
leakage via access to other users' tables?)
If sqlite works for you it's probably a better choice for this.
