I updated things a bit. First off, the patch to evolution-data-server
had a bug where list types could not be unset. That's fixed now.

Second, I replaced the UI for adding a contact's instant messaging
accounts to be closer to what Nat and I discussed. Whether I got it
exactly how he was describing, I don't know, but it's easy to use and
it works.

See for an example.

The patches and tarball for evolution (unpack in the evolution
directory) are here:

I've been asked this before, so to clear it up, the patches
are only part of the solution to the bounty for gaim <-> evolution
integration. The rest comes as a gaim plugin, which is built against
the gaim source tree. The patches for Evolution don't require gaim.
They simply let the user set their contacts' IM accounts.

Anyhow, please take a look, and I'd appreciate any feedback.

   If it wasn't for C, we would be using BASI, PASAL, and OBOL!
