i think it's feasible, but i don't think we should hold up development
of our carddav functionality to develop our own vcard library. if it
turns out that vcard4j is inefficient in specific ways, we can look at
replacing it, but i'd rather not build our own plumbing until it
becomes clear that we need it.

i agree that we should ask ben if he has any plans to add vcard
support to ical4j. maybe he could be convinced to do it with a
donation to his project.
