on your test system,

http://www.inf-it.com/carddavmate/#http://www.inf-it.com:80/proxy/caldav.php/test%40inf-it.com/colleagues/7570c8d7656f6900f34a678cdf10dee7fb5a5f74ee9db5e043bd33eff7ddf16b.vcf

should open the contact "Picard Jean-Luc" in the colleagues address
book.

the reason why i stripped the 'test@xxxxxxxxxx@' from aftert the
'#http://' in the above url is the basic assumption that an http
resource (and, in particular, a webdav or carddav one) is basically
independent of by which credentials it is accessed, and in general one
can't predict which credentials the one who finally resolves the link
will have available.

the implementation could even accept links with user name, but should be
prepared to search the available address books for one that matches if
stripped off the user name and open that one. in pseudocode:

requested_resource = window.location.hash
requested_host = get_host_part(requested_resource)
for current_principal in available_principals:
    if requested_resource starts with remove_username(current_principal):
        open requested_resource, replacing remove_username(current_principal) with current_principal

i don't know where we should talk of host names and where of principals
here, but do you see what i mean?
