If you want to remove Evolution and Red Carpet, it should suffice to:

rpm -e evolution evolution-pilot red-carpet

Its equivalent in Red Carpet (less easy to describe in email) works just
as well.  Feel free to remove any other Ximian packages that aren't
depencencies of other packages on your system.  If you insist on
