Am I correct here in concluding that neither Apple nor Oracle offer a 32
bit java for Mavericks and that as a result users who have updated to
Mavericks will simply be barred from using LO henceforth until some
unspecified time in the future?

No.  The Apple-provided JRE 6 supports both 32 and 64 bit.

Anyone know of an office suite that works with Mavericks, lol

Note that there are cases where LO works on Mavericks just fine. There are other cases where it reportedly doesn't, but without more specific data it is hard to tell why (at lest for somebody who never was able to reproduce the problem).

if the problem is only in extensions,  can one use the command line
unopkg to lost and delete the extension causing the problem?

Quoting what I wrote in the "LibreOffice 4.1.2 and Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks)" thread on this mailing list: "So, one quick fix for people who are stuck with Writer keeping crashing would probably be to move away the wiki-publisher extension that is bundled in the LibreOffice installation. To do that in Finder, first make sure LibreOffice is not running, then navigate to the LibreOffice (aka application, from the right-click menu select 'Show Package Contents', there navigate from 'Contents' to 'share' to 'extensions' and move the 'wiki-publisher' folder to the trash (or move it to some other place outside the 'extensions' folder). Then create a new folder (with more or less arbitrary name, you can use 'Dummy') within the 'extensions' folder. When you start LibreOffice again, the problem should be gone (it might show a 'LibreOffice quit unexpectedly' dialog once directly while starting, which is an unrelated problem and a different story, in which case just press the 'Reopen' button)."
