I use mainly a single browser, but I've been curious about the
analogous issue for email clients; how can I share an address book
between different clients? Sylpheed and Claws both use an XML address
book, but is it exactly the same? If so, is it guaranteed to remain so
in the future (obviously not, I'd think)? I don't mean to hijack your
thread, but I just wanted to point out that I have the identical issue
with mail clients.
