a global address book is, imo, a _very_ good idea; unfortunately i can't
program or i'd have started on it already.

as far as the feature set goes, i'd recommend two excellent existing
address-book apps as models: the former claris corporation's "claris
organizer" for macintosh, and, of course, 3com's palmpilot software.

in regards to the latter, palm-pilot sync software and a conduit for
this global address book would perfect the suite: any address "beamed"
into a user's palm-iii would be available to all other gnome apps
including mailers, mail-merge wordprocessors, etc. etc... sounds like a
winning combination to me.
