        Can you help me with the exact syntax?  As a test, I tried:
 abook --convert --informat mutt  --infile /home/kline/.mutt/muttrc --outformat 
abook --outfile abook

        An emtpy file ~/.abook/addressbook.new was created.  ((I still 
        stand by what I'd said for years, that a few examples are worth
        10K words.))

        Re a sed line to get this stuff into ~/.evolution/*, maybe.  This
        may be where another very simple perl script would serve btter.
        Further clues very welcome.
