Hi Matteo,

thanks a lot for the heads-up -

Yep - so I'd like to switch that live on master, but possibly disable
it / make it experimental-only if we hit issues getting closer to 5.1.

That at least works for me. ;)

Same there - almost impossible to unwind why those things were not
uniformly done ...

That looks innocent if no chaining happens.

Can't see any harm in that one either.

Unless there are objections in the ESC tomorrow, let's merge this (I
have one or two smallish cleanups still on my list), and then notify
QA with a similar heads-up, outlining the areas this affects (all
EditEngine clients - most prominently Calc, but also text in draw
shapes inside Writer). Let's hope there's no need for a whiteboard
keyword. ;)
