No, thanks! DicOOo was a huge ODT document with macros and internal 
links that got the job done in the early OOo days and achieved 
remarkable results, but that was superseded by the Extensions. It was an 
interface to download dictionaries, the Italian website still has a 
totally outdated HOWTO: http://www.openoffice.org/it/linguistico/dicooo.html

Extensions are the right way to handle dictionaries, and if there are 
dictionaries on http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Dictionaries 
that are not listed on 
http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/dictionary it would be better 
to package them into Extensions.

Regards,
   Andrea.
