	I suspect both of these are quite flaky; at least - the mail-merge
stuff is pretty hideous wrt. blocking the UI and so on IIRC but good to
make sure it gets no worse.

	Great, the rest seems really ideal.

	I wonder how we get the latest LibreOffice versions into there ?
whether we build them, or install packages or something ? Bernhard
and/or Petr - what is the easiest way to get say a nightly snapshot into
an openSUSE virtual machine for automated / openQA testing ?

	Thanks :-)
