i do :)  it's very easy, just use the "install" script that is included
in the top-level directory of the unpacked LibreOffice*rpm.tar.gz:

 > LibreOffice_4.1.4.2_Linux_x86-64_rpm/install
LibreOffice_4.1.4.2_Linux_x86-64_rpm/RPMS/ /inst/LO_4.1.4.2

you can install it in any path you want, it doesn't touch your system
(/usr) or conflict with distro LO packages in any way, so it's very easy
to install lots of different versions for QA purposes :)
