i think a little script similar to the old on on
 should do the job.

just for a starting point:

export DISPLAY=:0
for contact in `ls *vcf`; do
	LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/Qtopia/lib /opt/Qtopia/bin/addressbook $contact

didn't try it as i'm out of time :( , let me know if it was somehow useful :)

cheers markus
