Only if you can get a patch (from the abiword developers I guess) that
fixes the problem on 2.6.4; and the patch is reasonably small and low

As Ben points out, this will imply a flag-day change. For people
controlling a whole deployment, this may very well be acceptable...
and the 8.2.x I am working on is focussed on deployments.
