MS Office and OpenOffice offer a, IMHO, very limited scripting capability 
compared to what we want to offer with KOffice. Basic is not enough for that 
and we don't want to condemn our users (administrators) to that. As Boudewijn 
said, basic is the answer for one use case, which is, essentially, 
migration/compatibility of MSOffice/OOo users, but we need something else for 
other use cases.
