So I basically just implement a shared camel library for my provider,
puts it in "$PREFIX/lib/evolution-data-server-$VERSION/camel-providers/"
with an .urls file describing the supported protocol? Will Evolution
then automatically discover my camel provider or do I need to tell evo
about it in some other way?

I am being a bit confused here. I thought that Camel was mail and mail
only. The extensions that I am seeing in the eds extensions directory
are all addressbook or calender related...?

I see some e[cal,book]backend shared libraries in
"$PREFIX/lib/evolution-data-server-$VERSION/extensions/. Are they
automatically registered with Evolution? Should I just put my own one
