It would be extremely useful to be able to exclude fields when merging. Case in
point, I have 5 contacts who live together and thus share a home phone number
(not to mention surname). I get a large number of permutations for merging,
which I can easily deselect, but it'd be much slicker to be able to exclude the
home phone field in this case. I suppose in this example the best results would
come from excluding the home field only when the whole name doesn't match...but
I digress.

Awesome package...I can't believe how much time I've wasted not knowing about
this doing these one-by-one after a sync un-merges my IM contacts. Should be a
standard feature in the address book!
