Absolutely, this is awesome news. If we can get eds-sync going, Soylent
can perform a similar job on the GNOME desktop as Contacts on the N800,
and use the tagged vcard fields to add/remove/merge people. Having your
IM contacts in EDS is exactly what we need in order for Empathy widgets
to be able to do coalesced contacts rather than referring to seperate
buddies all the time. This is cool, I've been waiting for it for ages. :)
