Have you tried http://www.conduit-project.org/wiki/evolution-python?

You shouldn't access the database directly, because if someone is using
Evolution at the same time you'll corrupt the database.  Also, what if
the user doesn't have a local addressbook but is only using LDAP or
Groupwise?

Anyway, to answer your question, there is no set format.  EDS uses
pas-id-[some number], but the only requirement is that it is a unique
string.

I just tried evolution-python.
But it requires libebook =1.80
And on the Nokia N800, libebook = 1.4.2.1

:-(

Thanks.

David.

The version numbers of libebook on the N800 don't really bare much
resemblance to reality, disable that check and it should work fine.  If
there are any errors they should be trivial to fix.
