My idea was to create a javascript driven input form that lets the
user create and remove the fields he/she needs for the current address
(like the Apple Address Book or Gmail does). All field data is then
put together into once vCard string and saved in ONE database field. I
don't like the idea of having 200 fields in the contacts table and
adding one more field each week after somebody called for it.

We should create a new branch for this and commit the changes there
until we have a final solution. It seems to be a bigger task and I
tend to have the trunk only for quick fixes and use branches for new
feature implementations.
