It looks interesting. Sun Microsystems implemented something similar in
the deep past - but in the end it was abandoned. This is primarily
because if you want to inter-operate you need to be able to save that as
VBA macros again - so you have to do this bi-directionally =)

Instead we implemented built-in inter-operability for existing VBA
scripts so you can load your VBA macros, and just run them inside
LibreOffice (to some degree).

The major thing to improve there is the implementations of all the
object model methods, of which there are quite a number - improving that
is a -great- bite-sized task that anyone can work on. Doing that also
helps our COM interoperability via COLEAT. If you'd be interestedd in
working on that please get in touch with Tor who can perhaps give you
some code pointers.

It would be great to have you involved,

All the best,
