Okay, I see. The bug tracker entry clarifies the change and I agree that
it was necessary, I just wish that it had been handled a bit better
(mentioned on the list beforehand, bug number included in the change
log, ABI changed mentioned in 2.24 release announcement). I don't think
we need to discuss this further, but let's keep it in mind.

I guess I'll avoid the hard dependency on a specific libedataserver via
ldopen/dlsym. I might go all the way and wrap all the EDS functions that
I call; I have a hunch that this might allow me to provide just one
binary release because the functions that SyncEvolution depends on
haven't changed for a while (need to test this, of course).

Bye, Patrick Ohly
