After some discussion on IRC we decided to add a "Cleanup" method to the
registrar's interface. This method will be called whenever Evolution has
a reason to believe that the `last_checkout` date as passed during the
registry of the registrar has become (or is) too old.

After the Cleanup Evolution will do a re-import using mostly SetMany.

I have updated http://live.gnome.org/Evolution/Metadata for this.
