Less keystrokes for sure -- but these interfaces are usually accessed
programmatically... :D

Well, in short, I think the lowest level of uniqueness should be simple
string match, and this should at least be available if not default --
to the extent gmime provides (maybe that is this way in your patch...),

...and therefore I'd like to have this address output solved first, then
we can experiment with the outputs provided and have better-educated
comments on this issue...

"Foo Bar" (company/city) foo....@example.org


"Foo Bar" foo....@example.org (company/city) 

Phrase would be "Foo Bar"
Address foo....@example.org
and comment (company/city)

As a side note, nottoomuch-addresses does some heuristics there, and think
the 2 options above are equal (as "Phrase" (comment) address) -- which
might the same InternetAddressMailbox provides :O

Also, it seems that nottoomuch-addresses lowercases 'address' for
comparison and storage ... I am not entirely sure whether I should provide
options to disable these heuristics -- if someone asks for the feature
then I probably will do :D

Ok, but something (we can further bikeshed with) needs to be selected :D
