I got this working today.  Would anyone object if I create the gnome-3-2
branch early next week so I can commit this for 3.3.1 and then rebase my
account-mgmt branch on it?

Indeed libebackend was the better place for EExtension.  In addition, I
created a few new classes in libebackend:




These new classes factor out some of the common pieces of their
libedata-book and libedata-cal counterparts and serve as abstract base
classes for them.  Additionally, EDataFactory now handles all the module
loading via EExtension -- completely replacing e-data-server-module.c.

Obviously numerous API breaks here -- libebackend, libedata-book and
libedata-cal are all affected.  But it worked out to be a nice little
API cleanup.
