Sorry about that, didn't know about this, makes sense though.

Upon further investigation it turns out that sqlite is indeed
supported ( though this http://techbase.kde.org/Projects/PIM/Akonadi
said otherwise ). I added cmake option to set sqlite to default for
new installs and a post upgrade script to change all user configs to
sqlite if it's currently set to mysql. Mine was set to mysql with the
Akonadi packages in both stable and current. Here is the script :

  for user in `ls /home` ; do
      if [ -f "$AKONADI_CONF" ] ; then
	  if [ -n "$CHK_MYSQL" ] ; then
	      echo "Switching Akonadi to use sqlite"
	      sed 's/Driver=QMYSQL/Driver=QSQLITE3/g' $AKONADI_CONF >
	      echo "changed $AKONADI_CONF to Driver=QSQLITE3"

Let me know if there are any issues with this.

Attached are the new patches for current and stable.
