+%Maybe it should be put somewehere else. The question is ``Why should I use RKWard'' and not, let's say MS Office,

+%Certainly this applies to all R GUIs, but we are the one with the familiar spreadsheet-like interface and so on.
+%Methinks in the background section would be a good place. I seriously think that *some* readers are not aware of this issue and its implications.
 Future versions of RKWard will continue to add value for both groups of users. Planned features include
 an enhanced interface for debugging \proglang{R} code, support for editing more types of data, and the
 ability to connect the RKWard GUI to a remote \proglang{R} engine. Perhaps most importantly, RKWard will

 develop these dialogs as plugins allows to develop and distribute GUI dialogs
 independently of the RKWard core application, allowing any user to help in enhancing RKWard, without in-depth
 programming knowledge.

 \section{Creating a plugin}
 As detailed in Section~\ref{sec:technical_plugins}, plugins in RKWard are

 a simple dialog for a t-test. For brevity, the help-file is omitted.
