I wish LinkedIn would allow me to forward an email to an alias (like Salesforce, Basecamp, Tripit, and various other services that allow records to be added via email) and then automatically send a connection request to the person who was in the From: line from the original email.  Seems like it would be a good thing for LinkedIn as well, because it would remove the friction of users having to think to visit the LinkedIn website to manually request that someone connect with them.
