    Bump libecal / libedata-cal soname for API breaks.

Matthew, can you elaborate what that break is?

The libdata-cal bump was to cover the preceding commits:
The libecal bump looks like it may have been a mistake on my part.  I
must have been under the impression the client-side API changed as well.

Indeed, it looks like the soname change was unnecessary. It's too late
to fix now, though. Can we perhaps agree on a different procedure for
soname changes?

If a patch requires a soname change, then alert the list here. Then
interested developers can double-check whether a change really is
necessary and/or whether a different solution can be found.

In addition, the email will serve as warning about upcoming soname
changes for developers (like me) who want to provide pre-compiled
