Not really. I rename my contacts to a name that suits me and those names
stay that way, no matter what the person does in his/her vCard or
wherever. I mostly use firstnames and not silly nicknames :)

I only view 'nicknames' of MSN folks in status messages so fixing the
vCard doesn't really have priority for me.

I might change my nickname once every 20 years so I'm not really
bothered by this :)

I don't really like the way that iChat handles Avatars although there
really isn't a much better alternative at the moment. But I don't have
anything to say about what is and what isn't going to be in 0.10 :)

It's evil indeed :)
