AFAIK MSN keeps the authoratitive list of contacts on the server, so
any local changes to config files (IIRC located in ~/.purple) are
likely to be for naught.  Though it might still not hurt to try.

A route that is likely to work is scripted adding of contacts,
personally I'd look into the abilities of pymsn (the debian package
name is python-msn) to see if it can be used.
