What are you talking about? As has been pointed out numerous times, LibO
*already* *does* write OOXML.

I'm glad you're not the decision maker...

Does it?  And to what degree of compatibility?  Also, this was code that
was brought in from GO-OO which, as you may be aware, was developed by
Novell UNDER CONTRACT TO MS.  No, I'm not hollering FLOSS, here.  I'm
trying to get you to understand that there are copyright and patent
issues here that could embroil LO in legal battles that it really
doesn't need.
