And lo, iPhoto ‘09 8.0.2 added some sort of Address Book integration, and there was a bit of rejoicing, though not that much really.

When entering names, they will now auto-complete from Address Book, and existing emails will be used. This is a one-way, import-type operation, though; change the person’s email in Address Book and iPhoto will be none the wiser.

This is still the wrong way to “integrate”, but at least iPhoto is now aware of the fact that there’s already an app Mac OS X uses to store information about people.
