Hi Holger and the rest of the Debian community...

One of the things that Debian needs to do to package sugar is to
distribute AbiWord as libAbiword with a small binary wrapper. This has
been done for Fedora. We've told the AbiWord Debian packager about
this but it hasn't happened yet. Maybe some extra encouragement from
within the Debian community could help this happen faster.
