Rip address book from thunderbird

I keep all my contacts in portable thunderbirds addressbook, but it would be nice to be able to open it without opening thunderbird like you can with outlooks addressbook. I would figure since it's open source it would be possible to rip it out of there and compile seperately without any licence issues. It would be really handy, I love mozilla address book.

you can

just start thunderbird with the -addressbook switch. if you pass it top PortableThunderbird.exe, it'll pass it right on to thunderbird.exe. Just make a batch file for it.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
