Perhaps lag behind the latest stable GNOME release for stable Evolution
releases, so that e.g. evolution-2.8.x still compiles and runs fine on
GNOME 2.14.  But then evolution-2.9.x can utilize whatever new features
GNOME 2.16 has to offer.

Whatever policy is decided, should clearly state and check
for the required versions of the libraries we depend on.
