	Whoot :-) nice work Matus ! hopefully a learning experience too: if you
can hack on LibreOffice successfully, then there is nothing too scary
out there :-)

	Ok - I -think- that method is deprecated; we don't introspect libraries
any more, we just use the XML descriptions.

	Nah - we're fine there :-)

	So - I guess testing the toolkit components to check them, and then
updating other shlib entry points that we might want to merge together.

	We should prolly also do an analysis of which pieces of code it makes
sense to glup together: ie. what is always loaded for each component
(writer, base, calc etc.) - so we can fix them first: can you look into
that ?

	Thanks !
