Okay -> TODO list.

I like the idea, but you won't be able to do lookups, e.g. right now
you can keep the searchresult-dialog open, click on any of the results
and see which corresponding QSO in one of the logbooks is selected.
This is what I tend to do if I receive a QSL card: look up the
callsign and check the 'QSL in' box. 

However, we could add a checkbox to the search dialog, saying 
"open result in a seperate log". I will add it to the TODO list.

Yes. Would be nice -> TODO list.

Been thinking about this for some time now.
Should not be too difficult to achieve with latex (which I am using as
a frontend).
