As evolution obviously depends on libedataserver already, surely for the
files which are identical there is no problem at all?  That leaves the
files which have the same name yet are different (e-account, e-util) to
be merged somehow, and then e-util can become a place for purely
Evolution utility functions.

each of the files in e-util/.
