Would I be correct in assuming that the factory-default template is actually now embedded within the software--sans any file--for version 3.4.x? I noticed that the former version 3.3.x command no longer exists (according to my way of thinking...) for reverting to the factory-default template--the LO analog of the normal.docm file in MS Word 2007 or later, which is now built into LO, no?

Hi :)
You can get rid of all extensions, settings, configurations, galleries,
templates and all by just re-naming your user-profile.  In LobreOffice look

Tools - Options - LibreOffice/General - Paths

and look for the folders "... libreoffice/3/user ...".  If you rename the
"3" to todays date in reverse date order (eg for me, today it would be
"2011-10-24") then it's easier to keep track of which profile back-up is the
most recent.  LibreOffice is forced to generate an entirely new profile
which sets LibreOffice "back to factory defaults".  You can then choose to
copy&paste some stuff back in from your previous profile to regain parts or
all of what you lost by doing so.

Tom :)
