This looks like a convincing argument to me, in that if most functionality
goes into plugins, 'AbiLite' may simply be AbiWord sans plugins. And the
marketing possibilities I was excited about would still exist: it could be
stated explicitly that without plugins, Abi is like an extended *editor*,
and it gains *word processing* capabilities when you add plugins. Cool.

There is still this 'if' to be considered, but I recall that this is
pretty much the direction in which Abi is going, isn't it.

Thanks for the feedback,

Piotr, getting ready to rest his case
