Perhaps psychological. If we tell to our users "you don't have a local
address book in the GnomeMeeting UI, but you can use the GNOME Contacts
software to manage your GnomeMeeting contacts", it will be ok. However,
if we tell them they have to run and install Evolution to manage their
GnomeMeeting contacts, I think they won't accept it.

That doesn't disturb me to have our own address book in GM, but I think
it would perhaps be better if we were using an external soft, and not
only an external backend.
