The idea of using evo's address book came up on this list some month 
(years?) ago.
It was decied to not use it because of the (at this time) development of 
gnomecal and the format of evo's book.
It was still in an early development phase and the format chaged one or 
two times.
Because of this and the incompatibility of the berkley-db formats the idea 
was dropped.
