[Bug 743096] Re: contacts only sync with evolution not with thunderbird

We already ship an extension with Thunderbird to allow it to access
existing addressbooks in EDS, which gives it access to the U1

What we need in addition to this is:

1) Split evolution-couchdb in to 2 packages - 1 for the EDS backend (which we want for thunderbird), and 1 for the Evolution plugin (which we don't want for thunderbird, as it pulls in the whole of evolution)
2) Implement an additional addon for Thunderbird to automatically create the U1 addressbook (similar to what the evolution-couchdb plugin already does). I've already written this, but I just need to package it
