First, I don't belive Caolan has released a none development version of
wv, yet. He puts up releases every now and then, but there are under a
development directory. I imagine this will continue until he brings wv up
to the full functionality of mswordview (it's pretty close; maybe only
pictures left).

However, I doubt this problem will come up again once wv's API is done.
Caolan will probably be releasing new versions of wv before I can
implement the new functionality.

As for CVS, I don't think we should limit it. I think we should assume CVS
AbiWord is being built with CVS wv. If it is decided to make a release of
AbiWord before a new wv is released, then I'll back-out the changes and
move the code over to the next development codebase.
