Evolution stikes me as being way too heavy for something that just wants
to execute a task periodically or at some later time.  I think it might
make more sense to put a general periodic execution scheduler into GNOME
and Evolution could use it to implement its alarms, instead of the other
way around.

I definitely agree that having some sort of task scheduler as part of
GNOME would be a good idea, though.
