 Yes and no.  I'd hope that the relative trade off would be
 positive.  The more technologies that document centric applications
 can share, the easier the work load should be.

 Something like libgsf for the i/o layer should be helpful
 and takes care of things like symlinks, and setuid properly for

 In the long run I'd love to be able to use dia objects in Gnumeric.
 With a decent mapper to/from xls we'd also be able to handle them
 in .doc and .ppt files.

 I have zero interest in politics and forcing anyone to do things
 against their wishes.  However, given the paucity of resources

 will be getting it into use.
