No, each component has a separate BonoboControl-returning interface.
(Mail's comes from mail-component.c:mail_control_new().)

As things are currently written, the view control returned by
createControls doesn't create a property bag with a "uri" setting, so
Connector has no way of forcing it to display a particular folder. I
guess that's easy enough to fix.

I think I'll:
      * get rid of the existing control/property bag interface
      * use createControls
      * explicitly note in Evolution-Component.idl that the
        createControls caller is allowed to destroy the sidebar if it
        doesn't want it
      * add a "setUri (in Control view, in string uri)" method to
