Well, the idea is that Jitsi's contact list is more like an area for favorites or online contacts provided directly by a server (e.g. XMPP) and external address books (LDAP, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.) provide contacts stored somewhere else on the fly.
I get the point, also I have to say that the LDAP real-time look-up
works very well so it makes sense.

Please don't. There's nobody who could look at it (and it's the first time this request came up).
Thanks again for your support.
