That would be an exaggeration. Instead of re-using it you could migrate 
it, leaving extensions out. As we will want to change the name of the 
profile we will have to migrate anyway.

There is a migration service somewhere in the desktop module that gets 
the information about what should be migrated (copying files, 
configuration entries, etc.) from a configuration file. For everything 
that can't be migrated in this very simple way it also allows to 
implement plugable services that migrate particular parts of a user 
profile. Which services should be executed is part of the configuration. 
One of these services that already exists in the OOo source code is a 
service to migrate extensions. Just leaving this service out in a 
migration should be enough.
