Is there any point in suggesting that LibO and OO should continue to
diverge? I'd have thought convergence would be more productive, both in
terms of the development which seems too thinly spread, and for users who
might even see a serious contender emerging.

To my knowledge (which granted, may be limited), there is not a single
Base developer on the AOOo team. The integration of hsqldb2 had already
been prepared during Oracle's tenure, it was thereafter a matter of
integrating the child workspace of the relevant code. Moreover, AOOo
have dropped future bundling of the Oracle ReportBuilder extension
because of licensing problems with some of the Pentaho libraries, as
with the mysql native connector. In other words, the Base module in AOOo
is effectively at best stalled, at worst crippled with regard to OOo 3.3.x
