Heh, good point - you're, as always, right. :)

So we indeed need a way to prevent LibO from doing migration on
first start - just pushed a fix for that:

export SAL_DISABLE_USERMIGRATION=1; soffice ...

gives you a virgin user installation (subsequent runs will not
require that env var, as the migration is flagged as "done").

Having a migration wizard, that also permits selecting the actual
source config, and/or selecting only subsets of the config, would be
cool indeed, but I think that's something orthogonal to this
