I looked at the 2 different versions of vcard.el this afternoon. They
generally appear to be compatible, except that they have incompatible
APIs for displaying a vcard. The good news is that Gnus has code to
work with either one:
(if (fboundp 'vcard-pretty-print)
(vcard-pretty-print (mm-get-part handle))
(vcard-parse-string (mm-get-part handle)
(vcard-pretty-print is the new function, vcard-format-string is the old
The current MH-E package looks like it will work with the new vcard.el.
Nobody else seems to use vcard.el.
So I'm okay with upgrading vcard.el to the version that VM uses. It
seems like we should move it from gnus to mail-lib at the same time, but
I'm not sure how best to coordinate that. I guess I'll start by
figuring out how to test Gnus and MH-E with the new vcard.el, then
pinging Simon Josefsson (the maintainer of mail-lib)...
