Well, did not found other *working* solution via mailing list archive  
or Google.

Got a solution or work-around via the mailing list.

So some features present in H3 are absent in H4.
Whatever these feature 'disappeared' or 'yet not been released'

IMHO I simply express my feelings about what I consider as cons for  
version H4. All these remarks with all respect for the Horde team and  
their great job already done.
