I've now got all fields (and I mean *all* fields... everything that's
available in Address Book) syncing apart from groups and photos. I'll
need to do a bit more testing, but then I can push out a new beta.
There likely will be some limitations in that beta. For example,
editing a name or address in Gmail currently destroys any structure to
that data. Google's working on making that better, but until then I
need to come up with my own workaround, which certainly won't be
I'm sure they're thinking: how do we implement this without screwing x
million number of users?

Indeed. I'm also quite curious. They say they're going to offer some
parsing based on heuristics, and there's certainly nobody better to do
this than Google, but it's not there yet. Like I said before, I'll
try to get a new beta out quick that uses the new structured data, for
those here that understand what the 'problem' is, since I must say
that it's pretty nice syncing all these fields. ;-)
