Overview: The Address Book's Edit menu should:

I. With an Address Book selected

1. Disable
a. 'Select All' when an Address Book is selected. 
If this was enabled then the only thing you could do is to Delete. Deleting 
multiple Address Books at one time seems dangerous to me. 4.x has 'Select All' 
disabled when an Address Book has focus. 

2. Change
a. 'Edit Card' to 'Edit Address Book' when an Address Book in the left pane has 

II. With a card selected
1. Enable
a. Undo (depends on bug#5648)
b. Redo (depends on bug# 5648)
c. Cut  (which would perform a Delete)
d. Copy (jglick: should this be enabled. If so then how would it work exactly?)
e. Paste (if 'Copy' is performed then Paste should be enabled)

It would copy the entire card.  And then the user could paste the entire card 
into a different AB (or existing AB).  When the card is pasted, the "New Card" 
dialog opens with the appropriate info.  If the entry is a duplicate, when the 
user clicks "OK" they get the "An entry already exists for... Replace?" dialog.
