Yes, it seems to work great for all my initial tests so far.  Han-Wen is very
fast.  I have already made a word processor document that references several
EPS clips from the original score.  Now I only have one score to maintain
and one document to maintain, and when I change the score the revised clips
are automatically reflected in the word processor document (assuming the
clip file names were not also changed).
