The two basic categories are (1) imp/exp filters, and (2) tools - the
latter being somewhat ambiguous. The third category is really "other
stuff", the "svg" & "referee" projects being code examples more than
anything useful, the "html" being half-baked in STABLE and disabled
completely now in HEAD in favour of the "xhtml" importer plugin (which is
really an HTML importer and/or a Multipart [X]HTML importer)
- so it can get quite messy.

sometimes the problem is with dependent libraries, whether libAiksaurus is
the old GTK+-1.2 version or the new (and possibly broken) GTK+-2.0 version
- who's in charge of aiksaurus these days anyway?

Most available from http://sourceforge.net/projects/abiword but old
versions are generally hidden.
