Sorry for a late reply... I'm off for a Novell conference in US.

get_contact_list is currently used in Evolution for only one thing (iirc). 
Edit->Preferences->Mail Preferences-> Html Images -> Show images for mails from 

It uses get_contact list to query for the contacts in the system. I fixed the 
issue in Exchange in 2.12.x.

Get contact API is used by the contact editor. (You double click on the contact 
on the addressbook view)
