see demand for it now. I would prefer to seek the dialog with the distros that they change
the package names or any other names, registry entries that relies to OpenOffice but are currently
used by LibreOffice. I won't accept that LibreOffice replace OpenOffice without making clear
that there is a newer version for OOo ad well or better to replace it in general.

that's fine and it would be welcome
if the project can benefit from your knowledge. Renaming the pa Lahr might be ok but others
are changes are potentially not trivial and have more dependencies (e.g. /user/bin/soffice)

The only I would like to mention is that we should be careful with such changes.

We should ask 
- what is the benefit/ value of the change
- is it worth the effort
- what depends on this change
- what will potentially break
- ...
