OpenOffice 3 and KDE file dialog integration


I just installed Openoffice from and am wondering where the Slackware community is holding regarding integrating KDE's file picker into Openoffice. Right now, OO uses another picker and naturally, it would be swell to be able to use KDE's.

Is this possible?

I would like to see all apps designed to allow end-users to select which file picker dialog boxes they prefer. I don't like GTK or OOo file picker dialog boxes.

That feature would have to be added by the dev team.

EDIT: Shows what I know.

I've noticed that KDE started a project that integrates itself with Openoffice and also that Kubuntu's Openoffice does provide a KDE style file picker (although the kioslaves do not work). I was wondering where the Slackware team is up on all this.

Also, is it true that KDE4 provides integrationg with Openoffice?

I don't have a 2.x package handy at the moment, but wasn't this possible with the pre-3.x OOo builds? Either way, it's not something they build into the official binary, it seems, so until/unless they do, don't expect it in my packages or build scripts.
