Sorry for a late reply... I'm off for a Novell conference in US.
get_contact_list is currently used in Evolution for only one thing (iirc).
Edit->Preferences->Mail Preferences-> Html Images -> Show images for mails from Contacts...
It uses get_contact list to query for the contacts in the system. I fixed the issue in Exchange in 2.12.x.
Get contact API is used by the contact editor. (You double click on the contact on the addressbook view)
