I just did that. I tried to upgrade to kmail2 and it spectacularly
failed. I switched to claws, based on Duncan's recommendation. I'm
surprised I haven't been using it for some time.

Claws doesn't multi-thread well either.

I cheated. I set up an imap server on localhost, pointed it to my kMail
Maildir and then just did a drag and drop into the Claws MH mailstore.
Then I uninstalled the imap server.
