    It is not intended for the average user, nor I have any desire for us
    to build and distribute AW wihout bidi; this is something that was
    requested by guys who are going to use AW as the wordprocessor for a
    particular embeded device where space and processing power is a
    premium and bidi support is not required. I thought it better to add
    a handful of preprocessing directives myself then to have the guys to
    have to hack at this in their own tree. In anycase, I am going to
    make sure that the users are aware that the embeded version of AW is
    only a slimmed down version.

    As far as the particular embeded project is concerned I will let you
    know more when I have a clearer picture myself.
