To add one more point,  starting with FC5 the user will be able to 
install AbiWord when through anaconda if it's maintained in FE.  The way 
I'm thinking is that the FE packages will show up in the package 
selection list, hopefully that's how it will be implemented.

It would definitely be great if the FC rpm maintainer at AbiWord could 
submit that same package to Fedora Extras and maintain it there.
