I really wonder how this is possible, as kolab relies on nothing
related to mono:

aptitude show kolabd
Package: kolabd

Description: groupware server
 Kolab is a secure, scalable, and reliable groupware server.  It
consists of a number of well-known and proven components for the
standard tasks such as e-mail, directory service, and web service.
Kolab adds intelligent interaction
 between the components, a web administration interface, management of
free/busy lists, etc.  Various clients can access Kolab, among them
Kontact (KDE), Outlook (Windows), and Horde (web).

 This package contains the groupware server program, the LDAP gateway
daemon, as well as the dependencies and documentation to run Kolab.

I know quite a few kolab developers, and they told me that, unless
there is a dependency error made by Kubuntu or Ubuntu packagers, this
is simply not possible.
