Thinking about it more, it'd probably make sense to maybe make this a
mixin. I'll put the '\0'*320 back for now, until I can find a nicer

Sounds like a fine idea. One future direction is figuring out a
top-level API for address-book lookup - a first cut at this would
be something like

lookup(somestr) -> sip:whatever
launch() -> launches an address book editor

That way we don't have to try and right the world's greatest address
book, but can instead offer platform-specific modules to handle the
given AB. The nice thing here is that we can then hopefully get others
to contribute the small amount of code to work with a particular
address book.
