In theory you should be able to pass the EContact's URI as a
command-line option to Evolution to invoke the editor, but I'm not
certain if this works at the moment.

Looking at the code that handles the URI, it seems to expect a
contact:// scheme and "source-uid" and "contact-uid" parameters, but I
don't have an example handy.  Hopefully the EContact's URI gives you
something close to that form.  You'll have to play around with it.
