This was looked at for breezy but we went with openoffice because
koffice 1.4 has quite a few stability problems and most people were
supporting openoffice.  Maybe that will change with koffice 1.5, but
currently the opendocument compatibility between openoffice and
koffice isn't great from my limited testing and koffice 1.5 may not
get into dapper anyway.  So dapper will use openoffice, if people
really love koffice 1.5 we can consider it for dapper+1.
