I think you're mixing up things here. sip is a wrapper around C++ code
to provide python bindings, there is a library in the pile that boost
offers that does similar things. That library is not used by akonadi.
However akonadi and kdepim in general uses things like boosts autoptr
and maybe some other things (I didn't have a closer look). And even then
its not quite clear wether these things are exported in the API or just
implementation details.

So I doubt there's going to be any such problems wrapping kdepimlibs or
akonadi at some point in the future.
