I'm not uber-versed in Evolution since OM is my first use of it,
honestly. Having looked at the XML output, it appears as if there are
some X-Evolution and X-OpenMoko fields (I'm assuiming these work like
e-mail headers in that X- is effectively ignored unless specifically
requested by the app).

In any case, names, nicknames and phone numbers DO cross over without
issues. The categories do NOT. I'm sure some of the other stuff also
would either not be carried over or would simply be ignored, but for
the most basic stuff that I use, it works.
