Yeah, if someone just ported Abi to KDE2 it would be a very strong argument
why not use GNOME for all *N*X platforms. Not all people distinct GTk+ and
GNOME versions of Abiword. If there was KDE2 or, say, Lesstif port, of
course it would be more clear why it is not good to throw away any XP code
and stick with GNOME-only calls (what no Abiword developer will ever allow

Or, someone write a script that extracts all gnome-specific and xp code,
then parses it, optimizes and creates a pure-gnome source. Some changes in
/cvs/abi -- run the script again :)
