Can I merge contacts in CyanogenMod 7 like I was able to do in HTC Sense?

Let's that I have my contact 'John Smith', then I import contacts from Facebook and a new John Smith appeared. I want these two contacts to be merged under one single contact.

Can I do that somehow in CyanogenMod 7?

Merge exists in CM 6 - edit the contact, select "join" - if it's not in 7, it's a regression.

Asker probably means automatic merging (or rather "linking"), which for example my Samsung's TouchWiz interface does. – Ilari Kajaste Sep 16 '11 at 17:26
Then OP needs to update their question. :) – Broam Sep 16 '11 at 18:51
Yup, very true. :) – Ilari Kajaste Sep 16 '11 at 19:16
Why do I need to update my question? – Radek Sep 19 '11 at 1:00
Linking works nicely... Thank you. – Radek Sep 19 '11 at 1:00

It's also available in CM9: If you have selected "edit" for a contact, the overflow/context menu will show the "join" option.
