Thank to helping remarks from FJ Franklin, Dom Lachowicz, Andrew Dunbar !!
It seems that the original problem of ltr/rtl can be solved:
In addition to /usr/share/AbiSuite/bin/AbiWord make a similar
script `AbiWord-heb' which starts with the lines
In /usr/share/AbiSuite/AbiWord make a file `system.profile-he-IL'
Now AbiWord runs a ltr version, AbiWord-heb (or a link to it) runs a rtl
Still, it would be nice to run simultaneously two copies of AW with
different profiles unrelated to language question (for example, one with
green background and one with red...)
