[Evolution-hackers] Ditching ETable

What would people think if we replaced the remaining etable usages (mail
and task/calendar lists) with GtkTreeView?  The advantages are:

1) One less big piece of complicated code to maintain

2) Bi-directional text will just work

3) A11y work will be easier

The disadvantages are:

1) Potential performance hit (really only matters for mail, unlikely to
have 10000 tasks or events in a month), NotZed said that performance
wasn't bad in his eplugin test (improved from earlier gtk's anyhow) and
spending 1-2 man months on the performance issues is less work than
doing various bits of etable maintenance work in all likeliehood.
