Hi Alexei, I'm not familiar with OpenMeetings.  Can you say a little more 
about how it uses OpenOffice?  In particular, does it reuse the OpenOffice 
binaries as-is?  Does it extend OpenOffice via scripts or plugins?  Or 
does it require making core source code modifications and rebuilding?  Or 
something else?

I'm just trying to better understand the nature of the dependency, so we 
can better coordinate on this.
