[Libreoffice] Questions about SDK.

Hi all,

after building a LibO dev installation package, I installed the lot and 
the corresponding SDK, just to have a look at it.

It appears there are some issue, or so it seems to me, to be addressed.

Generally speaking, when I try to install it, it tries to use OOo 3 
installation whereas I can force the LibO one, but then it overwrites an 
existing OOo 3 sdk local installation.
Possibly playing havoc with the concurrent OOo 3 sdk installation 
instead of building a new one.

The IDL documentation generated during LibO build time points to OOo 
DevGuide on the OOo wiki.

The OOo DevGuide will then points back to IDL api on OOo web sites then, 
so confusing matters a litte...

So my questions:

1) about the documentation: this is a complicated matter, since the LibO 
API, hence the IDL doc, may have different material, so some decision 
should be made on what to do.
Or a decision was already made and I missed it.

2) the installation step: I'm not sure if it work; at a first try 
forcing manually the auto-detected installation directory seems ok, but 
the user environment for LibO ends up in the same directory as OOo so 
may be some small adjusting is needed.

Besides it would be interesting to see if the user IDL declaration are 
compiled and registered in the API database.
A somehow lengthly process.

Is there someone checking this? If not, then I'm willing to give a hand, 
may be I'll learn something new, though I'll limit the checking to Java; 
since on C++ I never did anything on the OOo SDK side.
