I still don't understand what ground you have to support rebasing on
Symphony, because as you have answered me before, you didn't try the
build they made, nor finished building by yourself. So, unless you
started reading the C++ source code, your support is completely

It's just like people talking in this thread about revolutionary
changes in the Symphony contribution... someone should point at facts,
not simply words.

The most prominent UI change I see is the property sidebar, that in
indeed something new, but not revolutionary, and even worse, in
several aspects is an involution from what OpenOffice has been
offering its users.
