Yes, that is the idea. If you use cyrus you put everything in there. You can
of course store mail in multiple places and configure kmail to work with
them, but it seems unnecessary

kmail's filters unfortunately won't work yet with imap. It is a long promised,
and long awaited feature.

But sieve isn't so bad, even though it's not point and click. And it has the
advantage of giving you the same results in any mail client, so you'll be
able to switch mail clients with no ill effects. As long as it supports imap
it will show you the same mail in the same folders every time. So you'll be
able to test more clients in more configurations than before (this was the
original reason why I set it up like this)
