Hmm, I probably missed a few. I specifically shied away from the geo
stuff until I get a chance to talk with people who know more about
geolocation than I do, since I want to make sure that we're capturing
all the information we need as defined in JEP-0080.

Basically I tried to avoid inclusion of base64 data for now, since I was
concerned about size. I'll have to do some more research on the typical
size of logo/photo/sound files in vCard. Do you think my concern is
misplaced? I'm really not up on this enough to know yet...
