...and sorry for being a pest, but even after 
"No need to by default avoid liborcus for Android, iOS and OS X" Windows 
builds will now default to --disable-orcus where in the past they 
included that functionality, so unless our release builders explicitly 
--enable-orcus (and I do not find that in distro-configs/) we will have 
a regression in the TDF Windows LO 4.2 installation sets, right?
