About one month ago, we had somebody approaching the Design list
concerning this topic. To make a long(er) story short, we collected some
material that has been created for OOo.

OOo wiki page "IntelligentGroup" (by RedOffice)

A specification draft (quite complete if we want to stick with the
today's GUI ... also available from the page above)

The OOoCon 2009 presentation for "IntelligentGroup"

Providing a link to the source code at:

Announcement by the developers on the OOo dev list:

The Microsoft Office SmartArt description:

Here is the SmartArt thread starter on the Design ML:

Thanks for Andreas Mantke who helped to collect that stuff. Hope this
helps ...
