Comment added by Keith N. McKenna:

I think I understand what you are saying Ricardo and I do not necessarily disagree. My concern
with starting over and why I believe t is more an option or AOO 4.0 and beyond is the amount
of work and the current lack of resources to accomplish anything for the 3.5 release.

It definitely a lot of work. The question that I have is can we get the resources that we
need to do that large a re-write.

Also there is nothing that says this cannot be a phased process, indeed that is how I envision
it. The first phase being getting something ready or the 3.5 release and also planning what
the next iteration should look like.

I look forward to hearing more of your thoughts on this.

In reply to a comment by Ricardo Berlasso:
A good reason to start all over again is to do it _differently_: ODFAuthors guides are separated
by app (Writer, Calc...) which is not wrong by itself, but can be done better if we consider
that AOO is a highly integrated suite with lot of stuff in common on all apps. 

IMO, starting from scratch is a lot of work, but also provide lots of opportunities: if done
right, it can provide a flexible framework that will make document maintenance more easy.

I need to think about this a bit more...
