My understanding is that Kami/OxygenOffice/ooo.itc.hu (whether and 
however they are actually connected) are the only "real" consumers to 
include that prebuilt numbertext oxt as a bundled extension in 
installation sets.  As such, I think it is best to keep the sources 
hosted at ooo.itc.hu or, if that does not work well, drop 
--enable-ext-numbertext support from LO.

My stake in this is merely that I like to "misuse" the various 
--enable-ext-* switches that appear to be there for the benefit of 
OxygenOffice, to easily have some "real extensions as seen in the wild" 
installed in the local builds I do, to see there are any problems with 
them.  So if there is a cheap way to keep those --enable-ext-* switches 
alive, I do not mind getting involved in some simple maintenance work 
around them occasionally.  But, on the other hand, I would not cry if 
they were gone for good, either.
