It would seem fine however...

I don't see any real advantage of doing that since it could deprive gtk
users of using gdk_pixbuf plugin.
It would seem to be an advantage for a less experienced user, however,
if he's so less experienced as not to be able to rpm -ivh another
package, than he won't even install abiword at all.
Also, that's presuming he wants that.
1) more troublesome creation of a seperate plugin for gtk version
2) plugin will "strangely" not be able to install since it will
conflict with the gnome build
3) less separation between plugins and _the_abiword_ app
