Well, yes.  That's why I made the point now, at an early stage!

Also I hoped others might be listening (Ross, for instance ;).  The
contact lookup thing seems like a common widget to want, in the same way
that the file and font dialogs are.

No, for reasons I explained in the mail to Reinout.  Bluetooth OBEX PUSH
