[Libreoffice] LO: Linux distro specific packages vs. universal build

I think about what package names and paths use for the openSUSE
LibreOffice packages. I wonder how they should conflict with the
universal Linux Libre Office build and what they should share with it.
I think that there are three main things:
1. installation root path:
+ /opt/libreoffice3 - used by the universal linux build by
+ /usr/lib(64)/libreoffice - proposed path for distro-specific
2. user configuration:
+ ~/.libreoffice/3 - used by the universal linux build
+ ~/.libreoffice/3-<distro> - proposed alternative
distro-specific path, e.g. ~/.libreoffice/3-suse
I tried to use the same directory but the other build did not
start because incompatible berkley DB, see the attached
3. package names:
+ libreoffice-ure, libreoffice3*, libobasis3.3* - used by the
universal Linux build
+ libreoffice* - preferred distro-specific package name
The universal and distro-specific packages can be installed in
parallel because they use different paths. The only problem is
the same name for the libreoffice-ure package. I suggest to
rename it to libreoffice3-ure in the universal linux build.
What do you think?
