Hmm.. based on the download stats, I don't think LibO is all that
relevant in the big picture. Most of the users are in Windows,
not in Linux, and Linux users are requesting OpenOffice.

Without being irrespectful to LibO, I think we should focus
Apache resources on the one true OpenOffice, and just
dropping a name isn't closing the door for their future
participation in the community.
