Well, what is clear is that the dependency on samba3 must be made as a variant, would it be only to make it possible for users to not require it without too much hassle. The real question is then if the variant should be made default in kde4-runtime or not.

"notmuch" on the other hand provides a very specific and IMVHO rather obscure functionality. I think that someone who really wants to have both ports installed can decide for him/herself if it's worth building kde4-runtime from source with -nosamba (or -samba with +samba being a default variant) and suffering the potential loss of functionality in certain KDE4 apps.
