I acutely felt the lack of totals information in the Turba address 
book when importing my contacts. The first thing I did after the 
import was to look for a total number of contact imported/in the 
address book - to compare it with the external address book I was 
importing from - and I couldn't find this information anywhere. All 
address books I used (including on mobile phones) seem to display this 
information somewhere - so I was surprised that Turba doesn't seem to 
display this anywhere. Maybe on the top status bar, on the right hand 
side would be a good spot? The same would apply to searches - if they 
list the number of contacts found it would be really useful.

I did end up quering the SQL back end directly - but this would be 
useless to a non-administrator.

I forgot to mention that I searched the bugtrack for a similar request 
- and didn't find one - but it is always possible that somebody 
phrased a similar request a different way and I missed it.
