AbiWord and dashboard

Julian Satchell got permission to release his contributions to the abidash plugin. So AbiWord now sends clue packets to dashbaord. One day Real Soon Now, I'll get dashboard and beagle working here to try it out.

Unfortunately I'm very busy at work and home and now beagle requires a modified kernel. I'll wait till FC-3 comes out to install these and play with them.

Julian tells me that the results are really impressive with just the little bit he's implemented (sending clue packets based on changing paragraphs). It will be really interesting to try tuning things so that highlighting text does some aggresive searching and clue matching.

Just one last blocker bug until AbiWord-2.2.0
