Does SyncEvolution use "Device" or "Installed Apps" OAuth2 authentication for google? Because generating a device token is very easy. Even an installed app shouldn't be hard (I think this script capture the bulk of getting the token: https://gist.github.com/jotto/2932998), but whether that works or not depends entirely on whether SyncEvolution uses GOA et al just to get a token, or whether it uses GOA et all to handle much more of the communication with Google. In the former case, I could just try to add a shim that fakes getting the GOA token (or something to that effect).
