PIM syncing idea

This idea came to me earlier today, it was kinda talked about during the
GNOME summit earlier this year (right clicking a contact and having the
ability to message them via GAIM).

The idea is you have a central collection of information about people,
like Evolution's contacts, and you have the ability to integrate that
information with other communications applications, such as GAIM.

This is very vague the way I'm describing it and have no idea how one
would go about doing it (whatever it truely is). Perhaps it will inspire

One idea I have is checking the "online" status of contacts within
evolution, but only using Jabber and similar protocols. You could have a
central Jabber server group thing for evolution and just have something
like evo-jab evo-jab [some domain.here]. This would always be "online"
and would be able to see the online status of the contacts. You could,
perhaps have an icon next to important in evolution that has a little
status icon showing online/offline/(n/a).

It doesn't make too much sense written down (at least to me), but

Hope you get some ideas from this,
