I'd be happy if you send me your sources so that I can add them in

That's possible.  You need to redefine `anything-c-bbdb-candidates' so
that it adds a special "*Add to contacts*" entry.  Furthermore you need
to add a custom `match' function so that this special entry doesn't get
filtered out and an action that adds the current `anything-pattern' to
your bbdb.  But I really don't think that this would be more comfortable

        M-x bbdb-create RET


        C-x x bc RET

if you use my exec-abbrev-cmd.el.

Most of the time it's only Tamas, Bill and me discussing anything, so I
don't see a real cause for an extra list.  But maybe we should move over
to or comp.emacs?
