About that. Looking at bug 923189 [1] (and other reports) our current 
backend management isn't really great. Currently akonadi-server depends 
on one backend, suggests all, and apt will happily switch backends 
around if the installed one has dep-issues (in this case the mysql 
transition in precise). Would it help to recommend mysql? Or hard-depend
on it if that's the only one really supported by upstream?
