If including msvcr100.dll can easily fix the problem for users and does 
not have side effects, I would be for including it even if the culprit 
is Java, or the way it is packaged.

Provided that this won't create conflicts when the Java packaging is 
fixed, this would be very helpful for the many users who won't spend 
time in troubleshooting and will just dismiss OpenOffice as "not 
working" in this (fairly common) scenario.
