I just released ownership of this RFP. I no longer intend to package
CoinMP. The main reason for this is that the next release of Cbc will
include a native C interface (written by myself), making CoinMP
unnecessary. I'm happy to help work with LibreOffice developers to
help them move over to this interface if you can point me in the right
direction. I took a glance at the LO code, and it doesn't seem like it
will be much effort at all.

There are also some quality control issues in packaging CoinMP that I
didn't have time to put effort into resolving:
1) The CoinMP API is entirely undocumented
2) The upstream tarball contains windows binaries (in CoinMP.zip),
which I don't believe would be appropriate to include in the debian
