Benchmarks with 3000 contacts, yes, and it's faster in them all.  The
only address books with 300,000 entries are remote ones (LDAP, Exchange,
etc) and you can only search those, so then you're back down to
effectively <100 contacts.

More testing of the calendar port, porting of more backends (generally a
minute or so of work), and actually doing the merge.

Rob Bradford and myself spoke about this at GUADEC.  Our basic plan to
propose to the Evolution community was to branch trunk in GNOME svn, and
merge the DBus port into it *replacing* Bonobo, instead of the current
approach of making DBus vs Bonobo a configure time option (which makes
several things more complicated).  The goal was to do this in time for
"GNOME 3.0".

And you are not the person who has been responsible for maintaining the
fork for three years. :)
