	Indeed - I'm not sure that the numbers are clean enough, pwrt. releng

	Great idea; proper accreditation is really important.

	What would be super-nice, would be if we could have a patch a little
like the Help->License info one - cf. sfx2/source/appl/appserv.cxx -

so that we cna ship that with the binaries, and make it available
