The problem I see with this, is that evolution will build against both
libgnutls13 (due to libgnutls-dev) and libgnutls12 (due to libsoup2.2
still being built against it). I can't guarantee that this will
introduce any problems, but it's kinda awkward to have it depend on both
versions ;)

I did a check on this and didn't find anything, but I might have
overlooked something, so ...

... that's ok with us.
