The gnome-shell calendar uses eds, so you still have most of

I do not think so. The evolution-data-server consists of a Camel
library, which is used for mails, then of the address book and calendar
(including tasks and memos) code, which is there to access, well,
address books and calendars.
The Camel library is only a library, the other two provide background
processes thus other clients (other than Evolution) can access the same
If you want to divide the "evolution" into these three parts, then you
are right, it's 2 running against 1 "offline". Being it on the code
lines, then it is  1061503 lines in eds versus 3246887 lines in the
evolution git repository. That is, evolution is like 3 times bigger in
git than the evolution-data-server.
 Maybe a bit inaccurate counting from the git checkout running a
lame grep over the whole repository, thus counting help pages and such
