Drew we rarely disagree, but the reality is that LibO can afford to take 
this view because the vast majority of the Lib user queries come to our 
forums anyway.  Most LibO users are like me:  LibO was the OOo distro 
that was bundled with my OS (Ubuntu).  At the moment there is so little 
difference from a user-perspective that its not worth removing LibO and 
downloading OOo.

Though this situation might regrettably diverge rather than converge.
