I think so here.  It's used as a name.

I think both "allows accessing to data" and "allows accessing data"
are slightly wrong.  It should be of the form "allows FEATURE" and
FEATURE is "access to data" here.  However, this seems moot now.

I'm not sure whether it's standard, so I've written "a" not "the".

Evolution-python allows programs using Python to interface with the
Evolution Data Server, which is a GNOME store of address book,
calendar and task list information.

- Dictionaries seem inconsistent about to-do, so I replaced it.
- Not sure about "python programs" and "programs in Python" seems too
narrow.  If it's like guile, then programs which use Python but aren't
entirely written in Python can still access it.
- I hate "backend" and it was ridiculed on the BBC last week.
