	Lol :-) well, we managed to keep it going, despite the guilt pile
somehow :-) I guess in this case we'll hack something evil, but writing
a duplicate, much simpler xml parser at a higher level to read only the

be a nice easy-hack to have around :-)

	Yes - roll on LibreOffice4 :-) I'm hoping that LO 3.7 should be 4.0
but ... ;-) need to discuss that at more length.

	All the best,
