I am an end user, not a developer, so I confess I have only a general 
idea what all this entails. However, as I wrote only a few days ago to 
the Scribus list, I would be very happy to see OOo become the text 
editor of choice for Scribus users. I think users of both applications 
would benefit, and the apps themselves would benefit from the 
cross-publicity. They probably shouldn't merge any time soon (with all 
due respect, the last thing OOo needs is something that makes it load 
slower), but anything that makes them more compatible is very welcome.

If elections are just something where you go in, you push a button,
and go home, then it doesn't make much difference which button you push.
