There was a discussion some tim eback about simply integrating Carbook
into the core code.

One question, or objection, that came up was the license wasn't
compatible. The Cardbook author (can't remember who now) was asked, and
agreed that they would be happy to relicense the code to overcome this

I don't recall anything more of substance happening after that.

It seems to me that this would at least be a very good starting point?
