It will only be added to the unix build. Other platforms will need to
work out a way to generate fonts and font metrics without accessing the
GUI. I'm doing this to enable abiword to be used as a server via
either a bonobo or stdio interface. In particular I want to add a
"sniff" feature where abiword word imports a line or two of text and
then outputs it as UTF-8 string.
The idea is to feed this to Nautilus so that one can view the first line
or two of their docs in the icon displaying their docs. This way a user
can tell at a glance what each document is without having to open it.
Nautilus has this feature already for text files - I want to extend it to
all the files abiword can read (a LOT!)
I personally would find this very useful.
