So are you going to do the update for STEP 1? Or should I do the minimalist
things needed for it and the "make things easier" stuff should be done later?

Please default to no. o2compat would involve /usr/share/myspell/dicts
and the info file which we should get rid of - at latest when squeeze has
a OOo3 so people running stable have a OOo3 there,

Maintaining it until infinity makes no sense, ans just clobbers the file
system for no reason (a /usr/share/myspell/dicts not used by anyone).

That'd be nice, yes.
