I'm ok with that, trying to bring koffice to par with office suites depeloped 
by huge teams is pointless.
but _please_ leave it just as-is in TDE as long as there is not a viable, 
lightweight alternative.
I remember a discussion awhile ago on trinity-users (?) where koffice2 was 
mentioned, which would eventually be based on qt4 only (_not_ kde4).
maybe there's a chance to have something like that in awhile ?

the existence of koffice 1.6.3 was one important argument for me to use TDE :)
I know support for M$ formats in koffice (1.6) is bad, but recent versions can 
read the odf files that koffice produces, as does OO/LO, and google docs.
that is enough 'compatibility' for me.
