But what about cooperation beetween abiword and gnumeric? I.e. what about
embedding one in another? I thing Jody said in some interview,
gnumeric will drop (drops right now) it's support for bonobo components
inside of gnumeric; It seems the work that was done on abiword side
(embedding components INTO abiword) doesn't work neither.
I think the second case would make much more sense...
So, just a question, what is the plan?

Hmm... rpmbuild -tb gnumeric-1.1.X.tar.gz works for me fine.
