Hi Tor

Allow me to strongly disagree.

I don't think we should pack every tiny extension in LO. That leads to 

Extensions are an elegant solution to enhance LO.

As for security hole, enterprises don't like users installing 
unauthorised software. There are ways to block it, as I did by 
de-registering the extension GUI and erasing unopkg script.

Firefox has a config parameter to disable user installed extensions, 
Nice feature to have in LO in the future.
