Forgot to mention another thing I was going to do on this branch, which
is adding a e_cal_get_objects_with_uid call to avoid calling
get_object_list for getting master recurring events and all its detached
recurrences (which is bug #59904). Thus, backends will return a
VCALENDAR when there is more than one event with the given UID, and the
e_cal_ API will process that internally so that we keep the same API as
in 2.0.
