BBDB is great, though I haven't switched to BBDB3 yet because of
incompatible changes I haven't looked into yet.

I actually would like to use org-contacts because I think the editable
form is significantly nicer than bbdb's.  BBDB is great, but you can't
go mess with the database easily.  EG, with BBDB if one area gets a new
area code you can't go quickly search/replace for all records replacing
111 with 222.  With org-contacts it's a simple search/replace edit.

Note I wrote a bbdb to org-contacts converter:


But what I really want is a bi-directional sync, of course...
