The vcard stanza is set for the user indicated by From:

In ejabberd, the vcard_set access is verified for that same From,
so it isn't possible that the module 'fakes' to be an admin to set a user vcard.

The good thing is that the From can be a full JID, with any resource,
and ejabberd supports a Resource ACL.

I've implemented the new option module_resource in mod_admin_extra
and provided an example configuration that seems to work.
Take a look to it.
