So what would it take to make Gnorb work with org-contacts and mu4e? I know Gnorb works with Gnus, but in my opinion, Gnorb's ability to automatically "catch" and identify incoming emails isn't as useful as its other features. 

In other words, if using Gnorb with mu4e required the user to manually flag an incoming email through a function like "add-message-to-gnorb," Gnorb would still retain 99% of its usefulness. The most useful functionality, as John Kitchin noted, would be to capture information from a mu4e email reply, and process it and incorporate it back into an org-mode file.

Sounds exactly like Gnorb! Except org-contacts instead of BBDB, and mu4e
instead of Gnus :(
