Subject binfilter (was RE: OOO340 to svn)
Date Wed, 03 Aug 2011 15:49:46 GMT
I believe LibreOffice is already taking action on binfilter, and it would be useful to see
if we can match their approach.

Also, I think there was (again on LibreOffice) a technical discussion on simplifying the dependencies.
 This was initially by having redundancy, with the idea that a better refactoring would come

well binfilter is maybe not the best example because in the long term we
should think about the elimination of binfilter completely. Announcing the
end of life of these filters, then allow the import only for some time and
the next step is to drop it ...
