hi folks,

i don't normally use abiword much but my daughter is getting a olpc xo-1
for christmas from her grandfather, and i would really like to be able
to collaborate with her on documents.  The xo-1's version of abiword has
a very simple "share this" feature, which seems cool, but i can't seem
to get it to work in emulation or with jani's ppa sugar packages.  i'm
not sure but the latter issue -- jani's packages -- might be related to
the fact that abicollab is disabled in ubuntu's builds of abiword.  so i
was just wondering whether it's possible to re-enable that feature
somehow.  i'm definitely concerned that my daughter is gettingthis very
cool tool, but won't be able to access its most exciting features, e.g.
collaboration -- anyway i want to be able to help with that.  

so anyway if you can offer any guidance i'd appreciate it.  thanks!
