No, it doesn't - it uses modified representative-hcard-parsing rules
to try and pull out the card representing the owner of the linked
resource (similarly, the FOAF import uses foaf:primaryTopic searching
to find the primary profile). If there are multiple hCards on a page,
it should pull the one with the url/uid matching the URL you entered
in the form. It works reasonably well - I tested it with quite a few
hCards - if it doesn't work, then, nothing lost.

I would have implemented a selector, but, frankly, I'm lazy and this
is a test. I spent most of yesterday getting the two importers
working, so I'm not touching them until the signup is finished. :)

See you there!
