[ZendTo] Ideas wanted: "Forget me" button

I really don't want to write an entire address book editor. It's just 
not worth it.

When a user starts typing a name into the recipients box, the matching 
entries are returned in the order of most-recently-used at the top. So 
entries that they don't want to use again will just sink to the bottom 
as their date of last use gets older and older. Hence no need to remove 
individual entries from it, as you will have to go out of your way to 
use them anyway.

The only functionality I want to add is the ability to clear your entire 
address book, so that people can exercise their "right to be forgotten".
