Hi
Why don't you simply use the "company" field for that purpose?
I can of course. But if I don't know the name of the contact person 
the only clever value for "name" (cn) is company name. Moreover, if I 
know company name and contact person name then I'd like to see company 
name in the "browse" too. If I wanted to see firstname / surname I'd 
add those columns to the list. And at last - if nine of ten users will 
not use this feature they are not forced to (well, the default value 
shouldn't be "none" in such a case :-) ).

hi



I use LDAP backend for contacts: cn - name, givenName - first name, sn 
- surname. My contacts are mostly companies. Therefore I use name as 
name of the company. In such a case comapny has no surname of course. 
Only if I want I'll add contact person (firstname, surname). That's 
the reason why I'd like to see name of the contact without any 
formatting or guessing surname. My patch adds third option to name 
format preference setting. Please consider to add it to the HEAD.



Thanks
