The format is like this:

 ("address@hidden" 38154 1516109510 "Lars Ingebrigtsen <address@hidden>")
 ("address@hidden" 10 1516065455 "Karl Fogel <address@hidden>")

Which is email address/times used/last time used/full name.

It only prioritises by the number of times the address has been used...
Hm...  I think I had meant to also make it prioritise based on recency,
but I apparently didn't.  But that can be tweaked, of course.
