Kontact is just a framwork around the solitary applications kmail, 
knode, akregator, kaddressbook ... So i would just use the applications 
without the Kontact framework. Kontact also wasn't really stable on my 
machine in KDE 3.4.3 and when Kontact or an included part crashed, 
Kontact with all its included parts was closed.

I think it's easier for newcomers to start each application from the KDE 
menu independently than to realize that they have to change the used 
components in Kontact to use applications like knode or akregator 
(which are neither activated by default in Kontact nor visible in the 
KDE menu).
