	Hey - welcome to the project :-) there are obvious historical Jenkins /
LibreOffice synergies somewhere here I think; great to have you on

	We can easily ask you to push only to there without further approval,
which I suspect is a stronger force than most access controls out
there ;-) but it'd be good to get a few more patches first, as you say.

	As long as you don't 'git push' randomly you're safe; and the most
errors problems should be disallowed by the server so ...

	Ah - that would indeed be nice; unfortunately - queryInterface makes a
dogs breakfast of type inference from objects: by the power of
'meta'ness ;-) we have no idea what interfaces are supported, and we are
constantly loosing strong type information down 'Any' shaped holes -
which is a shame.

	But - it'd be great to resurrect the object browser & get it integrated
no doubt.

	Thanks !
