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.
