Have an official openoffice for linux/mips might be a good thing.

Hmm, why would anyone need to have asm snippets in a document processing suite? And it looks like the bits are ABI-dependent, so at least three variations (if the changes are endianness-safe) would be required to handle all the ABIs that we support.
Openoffice wants to be able to interact with plugins written in many languages, instead of writting a module for each possible combination it chooses the so called bridge: every language interact with a common middle language.
 It smells like OpenOffice is doing something outrageously wrong here...
