Hi all,

I'd like to propose the following package for inclusion in ELPA:

It's a port/re-write of BBDB using the EIEIO libraries.

Perhaps apropos of the recent copyright discussions: there's a fair
bit of BBDB code still in there. I haven't gone through and measured,
but my top-of-the-head guess is around 15-20%. I've noted this fact in
the comments sections of the files, including the names of original
authors where applicable. I was trying to be polite, but besides the
etiquette question I suppose there might be a copyright issue here.

Can anyone advise? I'd be happy to go through and figure out exactly
how much (and which parts) of the code is original to BBDB, if that's

My other question is: if I require the cl-generic package for
backwards compatibility, what's the earliest Emacs version I can
expect to be compatible with? I'm also using seq 2.0 and pcase, and
seq at least says it wants Emacs 25.1 or up, so I guess that's my
floor, regardless...
