Alarms AP tests need to cleanup alarms after the test is complete

Bug Description

Currently the autopilot test cleans up timers and world clocks created during the AP tests by creating a test U1dB database. However it doesn't take that into account for alarms since alarms use EDS for alarm storage. As a result the AP tests could pollute the test environment (Jenkins or user) alarm database.

Either the alarm test should add a delete_alarm statement when they finish or a separate EDS collection be created while running the alarms test db.

EDS data (like alarms) is in ~/.local/share/evolution/, but we can't go playing in that sandbox directly :-) We should mock home completely yes?

Let's revisit this bug in the 14.10 cycle as we don't have anymore for 14.10.

I had a discussion with charles and zsombor about this and post-rtm the alarm backend will switch from EDS to Json based backend which should be much easier to mock (similar to clock app settings). We will revisit this bug then.
