I agree, different platforms using qt could want to use different ways
to represent meta-contacts. On GNOME we use libfolks, KDE uses Nepomuk
and Meego seems to want to use QtContacts (from QtMobility). The latter
is just an abstraction on top of different backends, for instance I
wrote a backend for QtContacts that works on top of libfolks.

To be honest, I wonder if it's useful to have a model that none of these
platforms will use. Wouldn't it be more useful to have the UI bit and
models on a library on top of something like QtContacts?
