Hi David.

    I've been over at taskwarrior.org, and the subject of contact
    maintenance is back in discussion. Once again I pointed them back
    towards recutils as one possible solution. The vcard format is as
    relevant as ever, and I find myself wondering (again) how compatible
    recutils and vcards might be.
    Here's the question: could recutils be extended with native vcard
    compatibility? or a vcard mode? or a small set of vcard in/out
    conversion scripts? How hard would that be?
vcard is basically recutils plus "properties".

The vcard format allows to specify "properties" of the entries.  For
example in the vcard entry:

  tel;type=work: 123456

type=work is the definition of a property.

So we would need to add something similar to these properties to
recutils.  Do we want to do that?  And in that case, which syntax to
