By providing a plugin that is maintained by the official TDE project. 
That is on our to-do list, but has not yet been started.

Essentially the following must happen:
1.) Pull the KDE3 picker code (including build script alterations) from
the OpenOffice 3.2 / TDE 3.5.12 builds on QuickBuild.
2.) Ensure that they apply to LibreOffice and produce working binaries on
TDE 3.5.13 with Qt3.
3.) Convert to TQt (a simple process that I can do in a day or so AFAIK)
and rename all "KDE" strings to "TDE".
4.) Rebuild, test, etc. until everything works properly.
5.) Push the patches into our GIT and notify LibreOffice that we have a
new plugin for them!

Volunteers are welcome as usual. ;-)
