 From the  tutorial below I get the impression that Akonadi can use more 
or less anything as a storage backend if you write the resource handler 
for it, and kdevelop has templates for these. Ubuntu, like most binary 
distributions, tends to pull in all sorts of things as dependencies that 
aren't strictly necessary.
