#pod =head1 DESCRIPTION
#pod B<Achtung!>  The API to this code may very well change.  It is almost certain
#pod to be broken into smaller pieces, to support alternate sources of entries, and
#pod it might just get plugins.
#pod This module iterates through all the entries in an address book and produces
#pod configuration file based on the entries in the address book, using configured
#pod output plugins.
#pod It is meant to be run with the F<addex> command, which is bundled as part of
#pod this software distribution.
#pod =method new
#pod   my $addex = App::Addex->new(\%arg);
#pod This method returns a new Addex.
#pod Valid parameters are:
#pod   classes    - a hashref of plugin/class pairs, described below
#pod Valid keys for the F<classes> parameter are:
#pod   addressbook - the App::Addex::AddressBook subclass to use (required)
#pod   output      - an array of output producers (required)
#pod For each class given, an entry in C<%arg> may be given, which will be used to
#pod initialize the plugin before use.
