Won't this require some changes on the pilot-link level to talk to
ContactsDB?  I seem to recall from a posting by David Desrosiers some
time back that there was some initial work done in pilot-link but that
is currently incomplete.  

It would be best that, where it makes sense to do so, code that is
developed to parse ContactsDB could be pushed into pilot-link (as the
lower level in the stack).  That way applications outside the
gnome-pilot universe such as jpilot and the Perl bindings for
pilot-link (I use these to sync my Treo with BBDB via syncbbdb) could
also benefit.

Of course I'm assuming that sync via the Evolution conduits uses at
least some of the code in pilot-link, and I haven't looked at the code
to know how it is actually currently designed/implemented, so I'm
probably way off base here.
