I thought about it a bit more and decided I didn't want a Word Count
either. I was thinking of a little gtk progress bar type thing together
with a page count. It would nice to see action during printing too. I like
your suggestion of a xp progress bar on the frame. I never liked barber
poles though. I like to see how much is left to go. A progress bar and
page count would give a nice feedback during lengthy imports and prints.

However since you are volenteering I guess it up you :-) I will be
interesting to do a gtk front end to a qnx feature unless you think of how
to do it all in xp :-)
