Seeing as there appear to be "no user servicable parts" inside, is there any
reason to not hide the ~/evolution directory as ~/.evolution so it will not show

This will only get changed if it gets changed upstream. There are too many
issues with migration and compatibility with upstream to do this. Additionally,
the argument given upstream is that it contains your mail if using pop or the
like and so should be user accessible.
