Thanks.  And btw, I like what Oliver did here.  We should do more of
this.  I'd recommend that for every 3rd party component that we're
investigating, that the person who is looking at it should start a new
thread on ooo-dev to discuss.  The collective knowledge and experience
we have on the history of these components, and possible replacements,
is greater than any single one of us has.
