Unlikely to happen because:
- Writing a sync service from 0 is a gigantic pain
- Akonadi is incredibly powerful and handles most of what anyone would need from a sync service
- Akonadi has a sensible and easy-to-use API that apps like Kalendar can leverage
- There is no alternative that uses KDE APIs that is under active maintenance
Not saying Akonadi doesn't have big issues, but it is a good base. It just needs more love -- love it hasn't really gotten!
Two factors were explicitly mentioned:
- complexity of the system (yeah, no kidding);
- less-than-great way that the project reacts to criticism (with ample examples of that in that thread).
If I find that thread, I'll link it here.
