I am cross-posting this to the org-mode mailing list.  If there is more
to be said about the following from the perspective of org-mode, let's
continue the discussion on that list only.

I believe org mode interacts with BBDB, too.  Yet I know little to
nothing about the details.  From the org-mode perspective, is there a
similar issue with BBDB 2 vs. BBDB 3, as mentioned by Thomas about EUDC?

The long-term goal is to make at least the core of BBDB 3 part of GNU
Emacs to provide a more coherent framework for other packages like EUDC
and Org mode, see


Are there any thoughts about this from the org community?

Here I am thinking also about the code in BBDB: my re-write of BBDB
mostly focused on BBDB "by itself" and its interface with MUAs like
Gnus, Rmail, etc.  Is there anything you would like to see to facilitate
the interaction of BBDB with other packages like Org mode (or EUDC)?
