Well, I tried hard not to, and the versions I see output by the tools
don't indicate that 4.0 would be used, but yeah, either I didn't look
in the right place or somehow otherwise that crept in.

(Also the TDF build of the 4.0.0 beta1 has the same problem.)

We could do that, but on the other hand, as you say, given how rarely
used the LibreOffice CLI stuff is likely to be anyway, it would be a
bit silly to require the newest .NET just for installing LO even if
for most people it is not used at run-time at all.
