I asked mg to look into into porting AbiWord to gettext. He dilligently
openned a bug for it (5893) and on IRC he told me he'd made substantial
progress for it. Nothing has been committed.
I didn't realize that getext has these rather obnoxious clauses in it.
It's seems to me that the spirit of the GPL is "if you need a lib to on a
proprietry OS it's OK"
I don't believe we should give up on Win95 in any case.
