Ok, i didn't know that, if that's true then we shouldn't try to.

It's because of the bigger feature thing. I'm trying to think in a
dumb-user kind of way here. Our next big feature is 'networking'. Now
what comes to mind with networking: Internet (and smb shares maybe).
What is internet? WWW, email, and ehm... irc and some other nerdy stuff.
It's no hard demand in any way, it's just that i'd say it would be
better to have it all in one. Of course if it means a lot of work we
shouldn't, but i don't think it does (otoh, i'm not really the one to
So in short:
what does the user expect: WWW, email, irc
(or actually msie, msoe, mirc)

That might be just as good. I don't think OOo justifies it's own direct
subnumber, so wether it would be 0.2.5 or 0.3.1 wouldn't realy matter
imho. I do think however we need a appealing feature for 0.2.5 (or will
0.3.0 be the following version already, as far as i understood
networking would be september/october or so, has this changed?)
