As far as I know the tool is based on GTK3+, so at least we need to wait 
for the port to .ui dialog system. Nevertheless, even that couldn't mean 
it'd support LO, but I'm not sure.

+dev list and Caolán McNamara.

Probably Caolán who's converting the dialogs may tell us more.

And yes, it's really really useful tool for localization QA, especially 
for such huge project as LO. So I'm looking forward to that great 
feature as well.
