I think it is quite out of date:

 - you dont want to/need to implement your own 'component', anymore, if
you can avoid it.  you only want to do that if you provide a service
which doesn't map cleanly to mail, addressbook, contacts, or tasks.
 - calendar/addressbook now uses shared library based extensibility -
although i think you can still use the corba-based interface mechanism
as well.
 - it has no knowledge of 'e-plugin' which is now the way the ui should
be extended.

(and to be honest, danw was a lisp coder who tried to write c, and it
just dont work).
