The idea actually came up at a barbecue where Alex Fiestas (CC:'ed) was 
present, and about to head off to Brno for the Solid sprint.

One thing I checked with him afterwards is was about a possible rewrite of 
parts of powerdevil, but I believe in the end the Solid team decided against 
the rewrite, so that is probably off the table.

Another, possibly intrusive thing is the introduction of KPeople, a framework 
to "normalize" the concept of Contacts across the workspace. I don't know 
enough to judge this, input here is welcome in how far this needs changes all 
over the workspace, or would need adjustments to the presented plan. Martin 
(also CC:'ed), maybe you could weigh in here?
