Make a LibreOffice connectivity/sdbc driver that does not use the in-tree ancient Mozilla copy.
says one can do that through the Windows Address Book (WAB) API. It
seems to be deprecated (see
). The replacement is Windows Contacts API
that's a venue to explore, too.
We need to pay attention that Windows Contacts API is available on as old Windows as we want to support.
This needs handling the SQL ourselves, like our mork driver does (connectivity/source/drivers/mork)
In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.
Thank you and apologies for the noise
A great easy-hack, though not entirely trivial for sure :-)

But now, the information is kind of lost at the tracking bug 56902 that one of the three things which that bug blocks on is implementing a "Moz-free Outlook Express Address Book driver".
