I forgot to mention that I also compiled gnome-pilot-conduits against
the newly patched gnome-pilot.  I had to manually copy 'gpmarshal.h' to
/usr/include/gpilotd for memofile to compile, so it seems this wasn't
meant to be a public interface and the patch may need to be adjusted.

That said, I downgraded to the previous gnome-pilot-conduits (still
2.0.10 though, just compiled against the unpatched gnome-pilot), and it
does still work against the newly patched gnome-pilot.  As such, I'd say
things are (finally) moving forward.
