is it possible to export the contacts in the local addressbook (using a
script), in a readable format? 

Yes.  Go to your contects, select all (or whichever ones you like), and
do File->Save as VCard.  They'll all be saved in the standard VCard
format (I forget the RFC but you can find it on the web) in the file of
your choice.

Well, it doesn't sound really fully automatic ;-). You should be able to
call evolution-addressbook-export from cron, then convert to whatever
you want and make accessible through webserver in the script.

The addressbook is Berkley database formatted file. Accessable via
defined libraries in Python (shudder) or Perl (Ah) [no biases here...
:-) ]

I am using a Perl script to do whitelisting. Could use something similar
and cron to automagically generate the web page. I have an example
python script somewhere as well.
