Community: if you want to write some opimd support (for instance in
Paroli) or improve opimd itself, please contact me. It was hard to
understand everything, but now, after fixing Contacts domain, I think
I can give you some useful knowledge :) I have also few nice and
helpful python test scrips. I'm going to post them on maillist soon.

Right now we have working Contacts domain with three backends: SIM,
CSV and SQLite. Now I'm going to work on Messages domain, which ATM
can only read from SIM backend.

People who helped me to fix opimd: Heinervdm (SQLite backend),
mirko-paroli (adding items with SIM backend) and mrmoku (opimd feeded
SHR GUI:[ libframeworkd-phonegui-elf2). I would like to see also you
on this list! :)
