you are overlooking one thing: as part of their code cleanup, the LO 
people have apparently removed the FASTBOOL type.

personally i think that the replacement of FASTBOOL by not-so-fast 
ordinary standard bools probably has slowed down LO sufficiently so as 
to cancel all the performance improvements they have done.

in fact wasn't it the case that in order to ship OOo to certain 
countries we needed a special export permit from the US government 
because FASTBOOLs were so terribly fast that they could be considered 
weapons-grade booleans?
