Hi Marco,
          There has been a lot of work put into pyabiword and the abiword
widget. It now provides a small left margin where users can
select paragraph at a click and selections are made per word. In
addition the buttons like undo,redo, bold, italic, left align
etc change state the with the current state of the document.

I think that Marc will find the time to update the AbiWord activity with
this  Real Soon Now.
