I didn't know I could do that.
In any case, your instructions were very helpful. Others might want to 
note that it's not obvious how to export a tsv file from Thunderbird. In 
the Address Book | Export feature, you can select "tab delineated" as a 
file type, but they don't show any .tsv file extensions as an option.
So you need to select tab delineated, and then it will output a .txt 
file. Then you rename it so it has a .tsv extension, and then after that 
the script works fine.

Now I have all my contacts in Evolution. I'll see if I can sync them 
with my Palm, and if so, I may become an Evolution convert.

Thanks for the helpful suggestions and clear instructions.
