It's different, from my point of view, as it's only few functions, with
compare of the whole EClient related API, not talking that it's trying
to be compatible, in this account management area, with the previous
API, where your change just changes core functions. Thus I would keep
this as is.

By the way, thinking of your announcement, I hope you are fine if I'll
finish this "stop using deprecated Book/Cal API in evo" as soon as
possible and commit it, thus it'll have more testing (I'm pretty sure
I'll introduce few regressions and bugs, even it's more or less monkey
work). As I mentioned couple times on various threads, messages and
maybe also IRC chats, this will make your life pretty harder, as the
change will not be simple, and the initial merge of such change into
your account management branch will be painful.
        Bye,
        Milan
