This gives a rationale for the use of LibO from a "dev" point of view,
which could be adopted as the rationale behind the adoption of the word
LibO. And yes, most users (as commented) would have no idea whatsoever
of the meaning of "library". But Drews comment would still give the
adoption more validity and flavour behind the adoption of LibO.
The acronym was born to slow down the "I like I don't like" saga that
developed immediately after the announcement, but I wouldn't call it
"official". It's just a nice option, that probably sounds better in some
languages than other.
As for the library association, I think that we "users" have been to a
number of libraries in our life to read or borrow books, but we don't
know developers' libraries, so I don't see the problem.
On the other hand, LO is just one letter short of LOL and LOO, and I
would avoid feeding the borgs with such an option.
