I think you are being an Open Source fundamentalist. Creating and using
macros doesn't drag you to the dark side of the force...

Agreed. Any complex software with which I'm going to spend a significant
amount of time has to have strong and well integrated automation
features (call it macros or whatever you will). Otherwise I'll look
elsewhere, at least in the long run.

(On a slightly related note, one thing that I really, really like in LO
and always have missed in MS Office is the ability to use regular
expressions for search and replace... in a sense, that's also a sort of
powerful automation feature!)

@Tom: wishing for a reliable and powerful macro language is NOT asking
for an MS clone!
