As discussed in the recent thread starting at 
"rpath / ... for extensions (and the case of PostgreSQL-SDBC)," it looks 
like the two bugs

* <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45058> "postgresql-sdbc 
doesn't work on LO 3.5RC1 win32"

* <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45090> "PostgreSQL-SDBC 
fails to load on Unix / official binaries: missing libldap50.so"

(of which neither is currently attached to 
<https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37361> "LibreOffice 3.5 
most annoying bugs," however) can (only) be solved by changing the 
postgresql-sdbc functionality from a bundled extension into a proper 
(optional) part of LO.

The attached 
0001-Changed-postgresql-sdbc-from-bundled-oxt-to-proper-o.patch (against 
recent libreoffice-3-5) does just that.  It builds fine on Linux and 
produces installation sets that properly contain the various files for 
the postgresql-sdbc functionality.

Whether the functionality actually works there however is not clear to 
me, as I have no recipe how to test it.  Also, it would need to be 
checked that it also works on other platforms (esp. Windows, also 
including whether the functionality is offered there correctly as an 
optional component during installation).

Feel free to review for inclusion in LO 3.5.  (I can do the actual push 
in case enough reviewers approve.)
