SyncEvolution already does that for EDS. It supports incremental syncs
(just send modified items), so you can edit one contact on the tablet,
another contact on the desktop, sync, and not loose one of these
modifications. Your manual import/export is way more cumbersome than
that. If it suits you, by all means, continue using it, but I expect
more from my devices.

Instead of implementing import/export or even sync for each app, it
makes a lot more sense to implement it once for a common back end.
