No, this is exactly my point, Pete. "Classic" users (as in someone that
has no clue what's really going on behind the scenes) don't give a damn
that GDL exists or even what it is, or what it does...all they care is
that the *final* product does what they need it to...just as a true end
user using AbiWord doesn't care that it uses all those weirdly-named
libraries....it's irrelevant..what is important to them is the final
product, and that was the very point I was attempting to make.
