as someone mentioned on the thread, you can store notes in Evolution
itself, but that doesn't sync to ubuntuone, mainly because the
calendar/tasks/notes backend in evolution-couchdb isn't finished yet.
So, we could finish it and provide the notes there.

But, notes in evolution are plain text, so you lose all the nice
formatting Tomboy and Ubuntu One provide. So notes will look bad in
Evolution if they contain markup from Ubuntu One.

As for how the notes are synced, Tomboy uses a REST protocol
(http://live.gnome.org/Tomboy/Synchronization/REST) which is used both
by Ubuntu One and Snowy
