Would you be interested in working on integrating such a thing?

For an extension, C++ is a less-desirable choice. If you're confident
hacking something up in C++, it would perhaps be indeed best to aim
for a core implementation. Conversely, Java or Python are nice fits
for extensions (with the added bonus that you can target past releases
of LibreOffice with that, and are not tied in any way to the main
LibreOffice release schedule).
