How might the friend's wishes be collected and recorded so as to inform 
my later actions? Different friends will certainly have different 
expectations as to what is appropriate. Should I just remember? post it 
notes by the laptop?

And, once recorded, should such wishes be ignored by the 'LinkedIn 
Export Friends Mechanism' (or the Orkut Import Friends Mechanism') ?
