Hi Hiroyuki,

thks for another 2.4.0beta, they're surely coming up fast =)

It's nice to see improvements on the address book. I have a couple of

- on the group creation dialog, the left and right panes should be
  swapped (it feels odd that available addresses are on the right side,
  contrary to what happens for example on the toolbar customization
  dialog). I guess the arrow buttons could also be placed between both
  panes (again, the toolbar customization is an example of where this
  already happens).

- still on this dialog, it would be nice if we could select multiple
  addresses at once (using shift and/or ctrl)

- on address fields, tab-completion should work on group names as well
  (possibly expanding to all the names on the group if confirmed, or
  alternatively showing the group name with a special syntax to save
  space). I miss this a lot... =)
