Hi Mike,
        That is a great screen shot. Thanks very much for letting us know
about your very cool work. This is very exciting for me. I've wanted to
embed Abi for a long time. Could please send us a patch for the
modifications you made? I'm very keen to get this work integrated into our
mainstream tree.

What version of abi did you base your work on? Our latest releases are far
faster and use much fewer X resources which is a very important
consideration in your biz.

If we can incorporate your work into our mainstream codebase you can take
easy advantage of the many improvements we keep making. In addition I hope
we will be able to expand your work into a general embedding framework to
enable Abi to be easily embedded into whatever embedding environment
people want to use it in.

Anyway, congratulations on what apears to be a really cool hack :-)
