abiword should be included in default install.

RH's KDE install comes with KWord, but the default GNOME setup doesn't
install any word processor at all. I think this is a bug. AbiWord is no
less mature than KWord, and I'd argue it's alot more stable and functional.
Missing mime-types for (abw|rtf|doc) in gnome-vfs is also a bug, IMO.
Dave, do you want to do this or not?
yep - I'll get it in there
I believe the remaining issue would be to add abiword to the comps file,
it seems to be in the distribution.
Installing AbiWord using the custom install is painless. Associating
.(doc|rtf|abw) files with AbiWord using the file association control panel is
much more of a pain; IMO that dialog has some bugs and/or usability issues, but
that's another story altogether.
Perhaps this bug should have been filed against gnome-vfs.
