We could do this but there is not an obvious benefit right now to using
the Gnome Canvas in AbiWord. We thought it might be nice to use the AA
Canvas but it is much too slow for text. I'm very interested in the GTK
2.0 use of Xfree 4.1 AA fonts though.

I think that is way to do AA word processing.
