Hmm, this really suggests to me that opening the Evolution contact editor
for all of the complicated stuff [1] is a good idea, and saves time by
letting us fix just one thing. :-)

[1] Say, pretty much everything outside gecos fields, email addresses and IM
accounts? Don't think this is a very current screenshot, but perhaps shaping
it around the very sexy c-l-a dialogues would be a good idea?

I might write up some stuff in the wiki for ideas.
