Swignition <http://buzzword.org.uk/swignition/> does support RFC2397
data URLs. When it outputs vCard it converts them on the fly to
"PHOTO;TYPE=BASE64:" properties which seem to be better supported in
address book apps than data URLs are.

The Swignition web service is down right now, but the Perl library and
command line app is still available for download.
