Argh!  I completely overlooked e_book_commit_contact... works great now,
thanks much!

For posterity, here's a snippet which adds an email address to a
contact.  It assumes you've got an open EBook and an existing EContact
assigned to 'contact':

EVCardAttribute* attr = e_vcard_attribute_new(NULL, EVC_EMAIL);
e_vcard_attribute_add_value(attr, "tom foo bar");
GList* email_attrs = g_list_append(NULL, attr);
e_contact_set_attributes (contact, E_CONTACT_EMAIL, email_attrs);
GError* error = NULL;
e_book_commit_contact(book, contact, &error)

Thanks again!
