I think a first solution for this not-integrated-software would be, in the
first instance, to share as much code as possible between all possible
Office components.

That is, to have a gnome-office-libs where code such as common file formats,
GUI stuff, etc, and, most importantly, common IDL interfaces, so that people
can choose any component from any project.

So it would be great to have all people involved on this start discussions
about this...
