Um, yes. I meant would it be possible without recompiling anything.
Evolution, for example, can import a CSV file of Outlook contacts
perfectly, so the mapping is stored somewhere. If it's in an external
file, and the evolutionperson.schema is also read from an external file,
it might be possible to persuade Evolution to use Outlook fields by
default. If the schema is hard-coded, then yes it would need source
hacking and recompiling, which is not worth the trouble.

Ah, thanks. That's very helpful.
