I have tried it. It has good concepts and integration. But I cannot
switch to it.

Please, if you intend to make vcard import, don't make vcard stuff
bundled with the ebdb, you will make repeated mistake.

Make one vcard import package that give elisp structure, something
like hash or alist, plist, whatever is better.

Then such package is best to contribute to GNU Emacs.

Then all other packages can use vcard import.

This makes much sense rather than making it single-package oriented.

I don't think that vCard complexity is necessary for contacts,
standard is invented, but is too complex. But if you are doing it,
than such feature can contribute to overall usage.
