Now for some wishful thinking. My ideal word processor would be modular, 
consisting of a core program with all the features that most people will 
use, plus a number of optional modules to enable features, such as mail 
merge, used only by a minority. With Ubuntu, for example, the install CD 
could then include a much leaner version of LO, within which would be 
the facility to install (and even uninstall) additional modules as 
required. This could even allow the possibility of having two 
alternative modules for much the same purpose.

Not just the WP. All apps - we could then have lean enough versions to
go in old hardware or mobile devices where processing power is traded
against battery life. 

Unfortunately the inherent design of OOo does not seem to allow such
approach without an almost complete re-write :-(
