What support does Evolution provide for custom plugins?  Static? 
Dynamic?  I'd appreciate it if someone could point me to some
documentation for creating one.
We have only very limited support for plugins in specific areas:
- data importers, which use a bonobo (corba) based model
- electronic mail backends, using a c-based object model
- bonobo components for displaying mime data inline in the mail view
- ?? not sure what else.

Also, does Evolution support modifications to the GUI via a plugin (like
adding a button)?


This is something we've thought about, but haven't gotten around to doing anything concrete about.  We would like to have a more well-defined plugin system, that would also allow gui extension (at least to menu's and configuration pages).
