Saw this running on Richards computer yesterday and it's really nice.

Since imho this should be updated automatically if you change the
information in Evolution there is one problem I see. And that is if you
send the file to someone, their UIDs won't be the same as the ones in my
computer, so for that I'm not sure the best way is to store the UIDs for
these contacts in the save .planner file itself.

I'm not sure how useful it would be to import tasks from e-d-s but maybe
it is. Using Planner as a data source for e-d-s sounds _very_ useful
though and would rock!.
