I'd still recommend taking a closer look at BBDB -- make sure you get version 3. Integration with Org is pretty good: you can add links to BBDB contacts, with completion. I'm knocking the last rough edges of a small package designed to bridge some of the air-gaps between Org, Gnus, and BBDB -- I'll have a usable version done Real Soon Now. Relevant to your use-case, it allows tagging BBDB contacts with Org-type tags, so you can 1) open an Org agenda from the tags of the displayed BBDB contacts; 2) do the inverse of that: pop up a BBDB buffer corresponding to the tags search of the Org agenda; or 3) pop up a BBDB buffer showing all the records linked to from the current heading. A little glue goes a long way... E
