Thanks.  That would seem a reasonable suggestion, except that I found
this from Ankur Sinha, who appears to be a Fedora developer:

        Fedora 15 will see evolution 2.92 which has the
        remove-duplicates in it. Since Fedora 14 will not see the 2.92
        series, I’ve built the plugin for Fedora 14 and created a
        fedorapeople.org repo.

That's at
http://dodoincfedora.wordpress.com/2011/01/07/evolution-remove-duplicates-for-f14/.  The repo is at http://http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/ankursinha/evolution-remove-duplicates/. That suggests to me that it's a question about Fedora rather than Evolution.

Motivated by the implication, I searched some more, and in fact, it is
built in in F15, under the Message menu.  That seems counterintuitive to
me--I'd have expected it under the Folder menu.  But it's there and it
