#1606: Match numbers to contacts more fuzzy

 in my (imported) contact list, I have “human readable” numbers such as
 “07032/12345” or “0049 170 12345”. But openmoko (at least the messaging
 part) only finds contacts that have the “official” version of the number

 It would be better if it could match numbers to names a bit more fuzzily.
 I have hacked some support for that to openmoko-messages2, but this should
 probably solved somewhere more central. Anyways, this should give some
 hints, and can be used by people who want this behaviour. The patch
 (against SVN rev 4522) is attached.
