While it would certainly be possible, I would personally not want to get
my hands dirty on that.

The reason for this is simple:
While I previously assumed (like Henrique) that the kolab patches would
mostly add some vendor annotations and other simple (i.e. not too risky
or complex) changes, the patches recently shown proved to be highly
risky and asking for troubles (except for the ones I already applied).

Disabling checks, allowing @ inside hierarchies, allowing previously
unwanted characters in folder names really doesn't make much sense to
me. And I don't see why kolab should require such changes (if it does,
it seems like a serious design flaw in kolab).

Sounds a bit ironic to me...
