Which is why the current way LTS releases are 'maintained' is a bit of a 
farce. I can understand not touching stuff like glibc, qt libraries but 
OpenOffice? You can also package things in such a way as to have two 
versions of OpenOffice and many others installed side by side just like 
you can get Office 2003 and Office 2007 installed side by side.
