Sure.  Ideally lots of things would be further down the stack.  Lots
of stock widgets, a shared plugin architecture, an undo/redo
framework (transaction logs would be nice).  My rationale for
stuffing a few things into a gnomeoffice lib is that it may get more
use than in libegg, and to get an implementation.  However, I'm not
tied to that in anyway.
