      I'm not a coder, but have been looking for a wp so I don't have
to go over to my Windows partition to get manuscripts printed.

      There was a while back considerable discussion and enthusiasm
for either porting one of the wp's that functional (Maxwell or
Pathetic Writer) or rolling a new one.  The perception was that gwp
wasn't as far along in development.  If we were wrong, then we need
to get everything more coordinated.

      All this started, if I remember correctly, when I said to
Reklaw, "Hey, Maxwell's cool; can you port it to Gnome?"
