Question for Integration

Hi all,

I am asking this devel group if you know any information on the 
following.  I and a friend were talking about this last night, and were 
wondering why is there no central directory system for Linux (or Gnome) 
machines?  We both use OSX a lot and notice that programs such as Adium 
(Mac port of Gaim), Mail, iChat, etc.etc. all pull from one system-wide 
address/contact book.  Before we started creating one, we wanted to ask 
why this does not exist.  Is there something we are not seeing, or has 
no one ever done this before?

Thanks for your input.
