Yes its all true, looking forward open communication with abi over word

"Release source code under GPL ... code for reading and writing Microsoft
formats will allow other open source projects to provide compatible
as well", that'd be you. Though to be fair I still reckon that my original
wv code
base is comparable in functionality, its just that StarOffice has so many more

basic decompressor, 97 Controls import, glossary files import and a hell of
a lot
of specific field and much better and in fact excellent escher graphic
support etc etc.
