An option to prevent automatic merging

Hello,

I'm a developer at Soocial (soocial.com). And we're trying to sync with yahoo via yahoo contacts API. The problem is sometimes yahoo merges contacts for no reason. It really messes up contacts.

For example,

I created an empty yahoo account, and synced with it. It merged numerous contacts in it. For example:

http://cl.ly/211o2G1k1F2S0Q2C2F3d -- This contact was merged with 2 other, and those 3 contacts have no common details whatsoever.
http://cl.ly/19433Y3u1q1Q0z13133a -- This is one of the contacts it was merged with.

This is how it looks in yahoo now: http://cl.ly/3P2p3U1a3Q0u0X1p3R21

My guid is: BTGAQJO7IAL2WUS7HFM2G3DYK4
The yahoo id of that contact is: 16777247

We can provide much more examples of incorrect mergings. Could you speed up adding an API for turning the automatic merging off?

Best wishes,
Eugene
