My understanding is that the (my)sql code already exists in XPCOM and related
APIs. It would be extremely useful for smaller companies to be able to use mysql
as a backend for the address book. A vital feature would be the ability to let
users create entries in the (my)sql address book that could be shared with other
users directly from the mail news client. I would be happy to create a db schema
and provide other logistical support. I am not familiar enough with the moz
codebase to do the coding my self. 

My company is now routinely deploying mozilla to small companies and this is the
#1 requested feature.
