Frankly, I wouldn't know. I cannot imagine, given the amount of grief I've had 
(mostly through my own cloth-headedness) that it will be smooth sailing

release. I thought -- and still think -- that it's better to issue a dire 
warning, than to be responsible for lost work days through killing KWord.
