Everyone CALM DOWN!

First: Ilya, by your logic, we would be using green screen terminals
still.  Be careful; progress must continue.  This project merely views
"progress" differently than the KDE4 "throw everything out the window"
paradigm.  Please do not confuse this project with keeping KDE3.5.10 on
ice, which apparently is what you are doing and want to continue to do.
Good luck with that.

Second: I was merely thinking out loud.  With trolls on this list
apparently that is a bad idea; I will save my ideas for the meeting, where
things have been more civil.

Third: I do not need to break the existing KDE3.5.10 plugin, but over time
it WILL break itself.  Good luck keeping it running when Qt3.3.8b won't
even build anymore.

Fourth: For now we are keeping the upstream plugin.  My entire train of
thought here has been an attempt to be PROACTIVE instead of RETROACTIVE in
fixing major functionality regressions.  Having no part in the development
of the upstream LibreOffice plugin is NOT a good thing, and has the
potential to cause a MAJOR USER-VISIBLE regression if upstream dumps it or
breaks it without our knowleged.

I will say no more on this topic for now.
