Would it be an idea to use mirrorbrain for this?
That has already the supported versions. We could patch it so it can 
give us the files in JSON/XML-format rather then create our own little 
program for this. The downside is that mirrorbrain hasn't had a release 
in 1,5 years. So I don't know how active that is.

Where is the check.php stored. It would be usefull to see what format 
that gives the data to LibreOffice to see what it expects.
