    Without this ability, automated contact creation via the API is effectively useless. When we have two John Smiths in our system, the second one will fail potentially at a time when there is no user intervention possible (during a nightly billing script run, for example). The best solution currently is to add some unique ID to the name ("John Smith ID#188934"). Yuck.

    This is a serious flaw in Xero's architecture, and is one of the issues I raise with customers who are considering moving to Xero.
