  What are you supposed to do if somebody has more than one name, or more than one email address
though? I have seven email addresses, my wife has two work phone numbers and many of the people
that you meet on the internet have public and private identities. How is a pim supposed to
manage information about a contact when there are no limits or constraints on numbers and
types of information that can be associated with a person?
  
+ = What I want in a pim =
+ 
+ I don't want any limits or limitations.
+ 
+ I want it writen in Java in a way that supports plug-in functionality.
+ 
+ I want a desktop swing app.
+ 
+ Unfortunately, as near as I can tell, it doesn't exist yet, so I'm writing it myself using
Derby and Hibernate and hosting it here on the Derby wiki. I'm calling it LifeCache.
