 From a user's point of view, it means that AbiWord on Maemo/N800 looks 
very much like a native N800 application, rather than a desktop 
application on a small screen.  It handles the full-screen button, the 
menu button and menu titlebar dropdown, has the N800-style toolbar at 
the bottom with native-looking buttons, etc.
