Inspired by a similar change tested in opensuse, it would be neat if kdepimlibs didn't necessarily pull in akonadi, as it isn't a strict runtime requirement for kdepimlibs itself.
This task depends upon

AFAIK akonadi is even needed by the Clock plasmoid now.

If we split kdepimlibs, we should disable akonadi playing with the config files, and you know: we ever keep the upstream configuration.

But the clock plasmoid isn't in kdepimlibs? And AFAIK it should still run fine without akonadi, it should be an optional runtime dependency.

No, the clock plasmoid is in kdebase-workspace.

"If you don't want to have Akonadi running on your system, you can not use any of the Akonadi-enabled applications. Such applications will start Akonadi, whenever they need its services even if you have disabled it. See the list of Akonadi-enabled applications. Also note, that some Plasma widgets, such as the Digital Clock uses Akonadi"
