This is of paramount important in my mind.  There are several tasks

would we want to waste that, or to give the user different behaviors

Okay. I see your point here. I was likely applying too much credit to GTK libs for a little too much of this. :) You are, of course, correct, sir.

libgsf is a good start.

with the Gnome-VFS wrapping in place too?

hopefully libgoffice will be in place soon and will help take things

I think, then, one of the primary parts in whatever the first step is will be to roadmap this out and establish it in it's own CVS tree. Then we can build a roadmap between the applications at that point and the applications in the next "Version" of GnomeOffice.

True.  This is more important than (2) in many ways.  We need to
have good clipboard support at a minimum.

I (we as a group?) need to map out what features are needed for good cross app behavior ( integration is not the word I want here, I think ). We might even should establisha separate bugzilla.
