I've made available some unofficial edgy packages that fix at least some
of the timing problems with USB syncing:

As you probably know, the birthday field and a few others were
introduced in the OS5 release.  The recently released pilot-link 0.12
provides some library-level support for parsing the new fields but this
support is, I believe, somewhat beta.  David, do you want to comment?

The Evolution conduit needs to be updated to support the new fields,
however.  The evo-conduits could do with some love, really.  I find the
addresses sync gets very confused with first/last name mapping ever
since Evo decided to attempt to map "full names" to first/last names
automagically.  Disaster.  I haven't looked at the evo data structures,
but I presume sanity can be restored.... Volunteers are welcome.
