  True, it's not any plugin fault, just a dependency problem, but since it's
a gdata dependency, seems the appropriate candidate for separate build.

  Separating mailmbox because of a gdata dependency change sounds strange
to me, but YMMV, of course.

  Sure, but the purpose of separating source packages is to keep both, not
to throw away one in favour of the other.

  Don't understand what are you referring with this or how this relates
with the problem, sorry.
