None whatsoever?
So tell me, will ABI_OPT_GNOME=0 allow the plugin to be built?

  1) flame-prone speech is what you did ("remove, add, happy?"),
specially because of the rest of the email you ignored.
  2) I did not want to do a full cvs update before being sure I'd still
be able to compile the plugin. Your wording induced the idea that you
had moved the plugin from the abiword-plugins into abi module. Even
though that wasn't very consistent with the paste you added, I couldn't
feel assured.
  3) in light of the problems related to this plugin, my fears are fully

I didn't even mention the braking of the tree, I saw the posts just in
time, and that happens all the time. Mistakes are only human.

Threats already? I think that's completely out of way.

Ever since I stood for my principles that you seem to feel an enormous
contempt over me. I think it's about time you overcame that. I don't
have a problem with you or anybody here. I have a problem with a certain
thing on a certain time. I deal with it, and then it passes.

People have divergent opinions, if we're all the same, we'd be robots.

Returning to the plugin, I think I made well clear why it should be a
separate plugin (and I am sure i can make it install by default in gnome
builds for rpms).
