Bug#775115: gnome-shell: consider making e-d-s a Recommends: dependency

Package: gnome-shell
Version: 3.14.2-3+b1

I recently replaced an arch linux installation with debian jessie; after
installing gnome, I noticed that ram usage was a bit higher than I was
accustomed to.  The biggest difference seemed to be the overhead from
evolution-data-server, which is pretty high.

This package is optional on arch, so I rebuilt the .deb with moving this to
a Recommends: dep; after removing e-d-s, ram (and quite a few packages!)
dropped away.  The functionality that goes away is mostly related to
calender events (and making clock pop-up more complex).
