An idea I've been having for 20+ years now is: how about an office
automation tool (wordprocessor, spreadsheet, whatever) that would come
with the bare minimal features (define: bare minimal) and could be
"enhanced" by adding features through a plugin system à la LibreOffice

This way, anyone could tailor the software to their exact needs and
the tools devs would focus on dedicated areas to add features.

seems to me this is what Borland tried to do with Sprint.....

for most purposes I would probably be satisfied with wordstar - much
bloat is attached to go going from simple word processing to what passed
for desktop publishing 20 years ago
