[Evolution] Contact List Wishlist

2 things I would like to see:

1) Right now, if I click on an email address in a message, I am
presented with the option "Add to Contacts."  It would be convenient if
(via menu or another mouse click operation) there was a way to add that
email address to an existing contact *list*.

2) I often need to create address lists (contact lists) from lists of
addresses.  In the past (When using Pine), I did the following:
- save a bunch of email messages from the "listees" in a folder
- open that folder
- mark all the messages
- using Pine's "apply to group" operations, extract a list of all the
email addresses in all those messages, then check off the ones I want to
use, then create an address list with them.

I'm not aware of any "grouping" type operations in Evolution that would
allow me to do this (it is a lot quicker than dragging names into a
contact list box), but maybe I haven't RTFM'd enough.

Thanks in advance.
