Sub_title: for Puppies that don't have seamonkey on board.
 

Hi people,

Ok, this is certainly an oversight dating from way back when. it may
concern you or not.

If you don't have seamonkey on board, defaultcontact launches nothing.
Nowadays, very few Puppies have seamonkey on board.

So here's a replacement. It checks if you have seamonkey:
if you do, it lauches the contacts manager of the "shrimp" browser.
if not, it launches notecase with a PIM template.

I decided on the notecase template alternative because it seems that you
can't tell osmo to launch directly in its contacts panel. (I'll be glad to be
proven wrong, but I couldn't find any indication of how to do it in the web.)

Other possibility: the BORG Calendar, a PIM written by Michael Berger in java.

I discovered this while working on the default programs aemenu.

Enjoy.
