gnome-contacts is an address book and is part of the core GNOME apps. It
has all dependencies in main except for folks (which used to be in main).

While this seems to work well in managing your e-d-s based contacts, I'm
not sure if there's a particular use for it in Ubuntu. Address book
functionality seems tied to your email client of choice which is probably
Thunderbird (installed by default, has own tools) or an online service
(e.g. GMail, and also has own tools).

We should ship it by default or give a reason in why it should not be included.
