I am going to do the following things for official Linux builds:

   * rename libreoffice3 packages to libreoffice3.4
   * change the default prefix from /opt/libreoffice to /opt/libreoffice3.4
   * keep user configuration in ~/.libreoffice/3

It seems to be easy to do for Linux. The smooth update from LO-3.3
newer really worked because the package creation system did not allow
to set obsoletes. So, the above change looks like the right choice for

Note that we currently do not plan to use this approach for Windows
