I personally think the combination Beagle/Dashboard/AbiWord will make
the writing of technical papers much easier.

When I write such a paper I know I have lots of relevant documents
floating around my desktop but finding them and extracting the useful
bits is hard work. It is possible that Beagle, Dashboard and the AbiWord
plugin will do a lot of that work for me automatically.

We'll see :-)
