Personally I'd prefer it if the logic in evolution-alarm-notify was
cleaned up into a library (I started this, see
https://github.com/rossburton/libealarm, but it needs a lot of work)
and then the GNOME Shell handle the notifications itself.  Currently
the notifications are pretty ugly and don't fit in with GNOME 3 at
all, which is a shame.  e-a-n should probably remain as an example and
for people who want Evolution 3 but not GNOME 3, but ideally won't be
used.
