So do I, even if I miss some things:

- mainly, the auto-discovery of new emails: when you receive a mail from a new
  email address but from a known sender name, bbdb2 proposed to add the email
  address in the DB; not bbdb3

- gnus-public is not supported anymore.

Apart from that, bbdb3 is OK.

And both of the above points are not supported either IIUC in org-contacts.
