User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040409 Firefox/0.8

We are working to convert our employees to Thunderbird from MS Outlook.  In
Outlook, you can drag a contact from the address book into the message body you
are composing and mail that contact information to someone.  This enables people
to easily send someone the phone number, email address, mailing address, etc of
a person in their address book.  However, I can't figure out how to do this in
Thunderbird.  Would be a nice feature. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start writing a new message
2. Try to drag (or attach) an individual contact "card" from your address book.

Actual Results:  
Nothing.  I can't attach the "card"

Expected Results:  
Added the "card" as an attachment.

Confirming in Thunderbird version 1.0.2 (20050317).  There is no obvious way to
either move, copy, paste, insert contact information into a new email address
(let alone another application via copy/paste mechanism).
