Hi Christopher,

 So I thought: Wouldn't it be possible to implement a feature that
uses the laTeX "strategy" to lay out the text while the document is
exported to PDF or would it even be possible to have the laTeX layout
of words in real time within LO-Writer?

I wondered that as well, and it's still one of the crazy ideas in my
mind... though there are several problems:
  * it needs to break all the Writer layout code... which is quite a big
spaghetti plate.
  * LaTeX code isn't reusable directly from C++ if I understood that
correctly, but the algorithms have been reimplemented in C++ in TeXmacs,
and the problem there is that this code is GPL and probably more complex
to use from LGPL/MPL code
