Idea: Syncing IM buddylists and addressbooks

Adium for the Mac keeps its buddylists in sync with the Mac iCal database.

The Linux Desktops should do the same thing. It not even that hard.

Evolution, Thunderbird, Chandler, etc should can listen on DBUS for vCard events. Pidgin, and also the top few open source softphones, should can publish vCard events to the DBUS as you add buddies.

It can go the other way too...
