Hi Lionel,

Yep, it was me who added most of them.

From the user point of view, as it works nowadays, it would be consider
a regression, as it used to work but it doesn't anymore. What
LibreOffice does internally is transparent to them.

But yeah, you're right, yesterday we said we will offer the user the
option to choose.

I'll revert my changes.
