I've been reported so, but I didn't check personally. However, keep in 
mind that if you are going to share your profile among different 
versions (which will happen in this case) I've seen QA reports about 
instability and, for people who uninstalled 3.4 and went back to 3.3, 
broken extensions management: OpenOffice 3.4 has a different extensions 
management and, while it will do its best to migrate installed 
extensions, it won't restore the previous situation upon uninstalling, 
leaving you with (for example) broken dictionaries.
