One small problem with this idea: there is no such a thing as "small
components" on LibO.
Everything is shared. If you look at the installer package (for
example, the rpm files for a Linux install), "Writer", "Draw", etc
accounts for only a couple of megas, the whole thing is on "core"
packages. To break the install the way you want a mayor redesign is
needed and surely this will break not only the install...
Right now, by not installing some components you gain lot of troubles
and only a small disk space. Of course, this also apply to bandwidth:
download LibO without, say, base will not give you a much smaller

I think Paul is suggesting that the download be broken up this way and
that each component be able to work on its own. Right now it is one big
download. Not all of us have high speed and many still (as I am reminded
quite often by our international members) are using dial-up. This is also
the case for many US members.
That's interesting - that's not how I read the OP at ALL....
I agree. To me it seems that the OP would like the ability to only install
the parts that he wants to use, not the entire suite.
