See "NOTE: Built-In Plugins" in abiword-plugins/README - it's just a
brief note. I will document the option (and/or remove it temporarily if
people prefer) in abi/docs/build sometime soon.
The built-in plugins build process is counter-intuitive and a serious
pain, though I do have an idea for how to improve it.
I don't really recommend mixing built-in plugins with loadable plugins,
though it should be possible.
Question: Why is it that whenever I add a configure --enable- option
and mark it "experimental", people feel compelled to try it out?
9. Has the work, for you, a metaphysical dimension? Yes ( ) No ( )
10. What is it (twenty-five words or less)?
