You may have missed my point, which is precisely that using an address book
or other repository which can be easily updated via VCards (or LDAP, etc.)
is much more likely to yield results quickly as opposed to convincing
software authors to support special-purpose code to extract unrelated
data from message header fields, waiting for such special-purpose code
to be written, waiting for users to upgrade, etc.
