So what about the plugin/extension thing?
To answer your original question, I think it's safe to say that no-one
is planning to make LibreOffice look like MS Office 2007/10.
That said, "the LibreOffice developers" include You, since it's all
developed in the open. So if you think a lot of people would benefit
from your idea, get stuck in.
Something like changing the whole GUI is a huge task, and I'd actually
be surprised if you could achieve such a thing with the extension system.
However, there's been some talk on the Development wiki (admittedly on
the "Crazy Ideas" page:
refactoring LO to use an external cross-platform GUI library. I think
wxWidgets is a better choice than Qt (as commented on the wiki), and I
know wxWidgets has a Ribbon interface that could be useful for doing
what you describe. Check it out, it was a GSoC project:
So... go learn C++, refactor the entire LO codebase, *then* you can have
your ribbon :p
