I like the abi-1.2 idea as well, especially since we're likely to be
changing the directory structure and possibly renaming/moving a large
number of files.
We should probably start thinking about the directory structure.
It would make me happy if we could have a clear hierarchy. At the moment
some UT* include XAP* and/or GR*, and vice versa, whereas (I feel) it ought
to be possible to have, e.g., UT* self-contained, GR* may use UT*, XAP* may
use GR* and UT* etc. But is this an unreasonable expectation?
For example, the encoding manager sits in XAP but, as other current
threads attest, encoding is a fundamental part of AbiWord, and should
probably sit in UT...
One thing I'd like to add is an IO category.
Finally, there has been talk of adding plugins to the main tree - how is
