AFAIK GStreamer doesn't have a lot of user-data/configuration, whereas
e-d-s has multiple sources of data, configured in GConf and cached or
stored under ~/.evolution

Would these be parallel installable APIs to the same data, or entirely
separate pools of data?  What would happen when you upgrade the version
of Evolution; would the migration code attempt to handle it?  What if
you have a data store supported in one version but not in another? etc
