There is discussion about a "new" engine for the A330HGW

Question:
	Could Airbus not install/use the same engines used on the 777 ?

What would be involved in installing an existing engine on a new plane
derivative ?

How much relationship is there between an engine and a plane's design
and between an engine and a wing ? Is it just a question of fitting an
engine that has the right thrust, or is there a lot more involved ?
