Yeah, that's true.  I thought you referring to another problem.

Yeah, anytime a backend is added it increases the load, but we're
working on some other ways to address that, so I wouldn't be too worried
about it.  So long as it stays in dotdirs it won't conflict with the
file system backend and I have no problem with having it.

If you can adapt your backend to be a full KMail backend, I am happy to
include it.  I am ignorant to how KMail sets up its stores, so I will
leave the details to you. :)
