I don't really mind to take some time to learn the tool. If I have to,
I will. But, in the old days, when bbdb was THE tool to have, there
were such good hacks to use (I remember Sacha's ones). Nowadays,
everyone is using org-mode (which is a great tool, for usre) for all
and everything and thus, little by little, the more org-mode is
growing, the less bbdb is used.

I would really like having time to transpose some hacks from bbdbv2 to
bbdbv3 but my skills and time lack :/

I do not remember the ML address, do you have it ?

Thank you.
