	I don't read this as a killer feature; I read this as a tragedy for
Gnome - where this could have been done in a generic way, folded back
into the platform and all Gnome apps would have this feature. Instead,
just one application has this feature [the only one one unix!].

	And it's easier to hack on / grapple with / understand - but you miss a
large chunk of other work they've been engaged on.

	_Personally_ I would not invest time in hacking on AbiWord - beyond
bonobo-izing it, but I would invest time in making OpenOffice more
gnome-integrated and gnome-ish :-)
