Yea I will make this customizable... Maybe there is a changeable id 
field in 1.5 so this is no longer needed, lets see...

Actually it shouldnt, altough there seems to be a bug in there. The idea 
is following: when running synckolab, a local database of all contacts 
is being generated. So when you sync each contact is chaecked absed on 
following rule:
local=db but <> remote -> remote changed, update local+db
local<>db but db==remote -> local changed, update remote
local<>db<>remote -> both changed, ask

so if you delete something locally, but the contact is still in the db 
and on the server, the server contact should be removed....

No I didnt test it for lists. From the mailing list I found out it does not.
