While I can understand the intention of the bug, to me the proposed
solution sounds like bad English. I am also unsure if the change
proposed expresses the option properly (and if this option can be
explained properly in three words).
I think a better solution would be to keep "Create hybrid file", but
add an explanation two-liner like "Saves an ODF version of this
document inside the PDF, making the PDF easily editable in
%PRODUCTNAME." (Note that the original patch hard-coded the
application name!)

I am also not too keen on the ".pdf" file extension being changed to
".odf.pdf"—there will be enough users who still have the "hide known
file extensions" option of Windows on and thus will only see ".odf".
Additionally, two file extensions look awful.

Best regards,
