​Just like we do automatically for Windows, but offer no solution on Linux.
Users need to do it manually.​

​There is also Akonadi which is the underlining resource manager for
KDE-PIM. Not sure to what degree of integration with KMail "services" is
dependable of it. I know in the past Sun people worked with Mozilla to
integrate some of the Calendar/Mail services with OpenOffice under the
Lightning project. ​

Evolution is practically death, but both Kolab/Akonadi are very well alive
under the KDE layer. ​

​Gnome use gconf for their setting rules (API), I don't know the actual
name for KDE but I know there is one. This is a few layers above DBus/uDev,
but more on the Desktop environment level.

I also think that we need to take efforts to make OpenOffice finally deal
with media (for embedded objects). Sun never wanted to depend on DM
specific media frameworks like gstreamer, and preffered a very obsolete JMF
(Java Media Framework) which quite honestly never really worked as
expected. Freedesktop have some frameworks like Telepathy, and KDE has
phonon to deal with media.

KDE deals greatly with OpenDocuments (not really AOO but helps) having an
internal rendering libraries for all things OpenDocuments natively.
