Pardon my ignorance, but I had a hard time finding the requirements for
inclusion in Gnome.  I found
via a Google search (I couldn't find any direct links to it from various sites that I could think of), but I don't know if this
document has since been followed by later revisions.

However, if that document still stands then usage of
is not an actual requirement.  Yes it is encouraged, but considering
that one of the bugmasters, namely Andrew of the Pants, has already
stated that he's cool with the current situation, I see no reason for this
issue to block inclusion of Evolution.
