[Standards-JIG] vCard Filtering

Hi folk,

I'm wondering if anyone has been looking into the vCard filtering  
functionality.  A few folk seemed to express interest in the concept,  
and I wrote it up into a JEP to give it a start.  I'm interested to  
hear if anyone has tried implementing it and how that went.  I could  
implement it within PyAIM and PyICQ.  I still have an internal  
conflict as to whether it should be able to do both exclude and  
include-only.  If PyICQ wanted to ask for a photo and nickname and  
nothing else, it would have to exclude everything else, which could  
get rather large.  However, if a client didn't want the PHOTO element  
for a vCard lookup, they could exclude it out.  Of course, Psi  
implements PHOTO in it's vCard lookup, so why would it exclude that?   
I mean, if nothing else, I appreciate the experience in writing it up  
in the first place, I had other unrelated JEP submissions in mind for  
the future, but I still am curious about my first born. ;D ;D ;D
