    Here is the list of metadata props that I've settled on. Others can be
    added if/when needed.

    AbiWord (* indicates also present in MSWord)

    Author * (this document's author, eg: "Dom Lachowicz")
    Subject * (this document's subject, eg: "AbiWord and Bonobo
    Title * (this document's title, eg: "How To Build A Bonobo Control
    from AbiWord")
    Summary * (this document's summary, eg: "Dom goes through, step by step,
    and shows you how to create a Bonobo wrapper of AbiWord")
    Orginization (this document's orgnization, eg: "Appligent" or
    "AbiSource, Inc."
    Keywords * (this document's searchable keywords, eg: "Bonobo Control
    Embeddable AbiWord HowTo")
    Comments * (this document's comments, eg: "Useful for beginners and
    advanced programmers alike")
    Role (this document's role in a set of documents, eg: "Intro: 1 of 3")

    Others can be added (#pages, #chars, #lines, #paragraphs, etc...).
    MSWord does these, but they are only approximates gathered basically at
    some random point in time, not necessarily on saving.

    I'll start working on a nice dialog for this, including custom metadata
    properties. I'll get property importing from MSWord working first,
