The advice of Caolan McNamara is something that one always values a lot.
It is basically him that wrote the OOo M$ Word import filter, so he
knows quite a bit.
For plugin in AbiWord, ping uwog at #irc.gimp.org. He needs to be poked
from time to time so that he does not become idle :-P

Myself, I do not have any problem about you using libwpd as dependency.
the WPXHLListenerImpl class and the depending classes WPXProperty* and
WPXString are of general use and interest. I encourage you to use them.
What I was referring to is that if the discussion about the M$ Works
file-format becomes more specific, it would be nice to have a separate
project / mailing list. I will gladly subscribe it if I can be of any help.



P.S.: Could not test your code since I do not have any Works copy
running anywhere. Using mainly GNU/Linux :-)
