Is the personal addressbook entry allways there? and how is it changed by a 
user not having the kdepim module installed? Kate templates is now using the 
personal addressbook entry, but a user running kate in a non-kde environment 
(we get mor and more of those, actually) will be met with a dialog asking him 
to edit that if the data isn't found. If there was a kcm module (in kdebase) 
to edit that information, I'd feel more safe using the kabc data, and I could 
even launch that if the entry was empty.
