I have no objections.  Have you talked to Eskil?  He might be
interested in knowing that this conduit exists.

I think it is a mistake that the addressbook CORBA interface is
specific to the field-level.

I rather use the approach used in GnomeCal: transfering entire vCard
records between the conduit and the addressbook.  And having the
conduit modify this and send an updated version to the calendar.

Providing lots of interfaces and lots of CORBA methods sounds to me
like a bad idea in general.

Well, we can definetly use this code in the next "thing" anyways.  The
next thing is called evolution.
