Simple solution to end this argument: Evolution brings up a setup dialog
when a user runs it for the first time. This dialog should ask "where to
store evolution files", with "$HOME/evolution" being the default (or
"$HOME/.evolution", it doesn't really matter). Once the user accepts
a certain directory, the value can be stored in a file in "$HOME/.gnome"
or something.

I suppose Evolution could also have a config option in it's menues that 
allow one to change the said directory later on, and it'll automatically 
move everything.
