[SailfishDevel] Harbour compliant way to read contacts

So Jolla get's punishment, because a user want's to use HIS Contacts,
because they are fetched from 3rd party service, the user put HIS
contacts?! - Wow strange.

But making "added by hand" contacts is/could be possible? And what about if
the user have to accept that a app wants to use his contacts from 3rd
party? Maybe verifyed with soöe kind of JollaContactAccessAPI. So that an
app can use the ContactsAPI just with a valid token, or something like
that. :)

Just guessing,...Gabriel.

issue not in app permissions. issue in restriction access to "cloud"
contacts got from 3rd party services, and so on

 And wouldn't separate permission for each app solve the thing?
