... because LibreOffice? is too stupid/cool to ship /usr/bin/loffice.

I'm really only interested on this on -cluster, and I'm not suggesting we preserve functionality, I'm suggesting it whine at the user via zenity (in case it's started from a .desktop file) or stderr and tell them what to go type.

However, we should only ship this if it's not already there. Since on cluster, we own the disk, I'd consider shoving this somewhere like c-l-c's postinst, since I don't want to bother to create a package. I suppose we could create a glue package and only depend on it on Natty cluster. Possibly -workstation, especially since we have -login-graphical for the "I want graphical logins but don't like release-team's decisions" crowd.

Thanks to incompetence, this change got packaged, but doesn't actually work, because we clobber the targets after customizing them. Fixed in r25610/extra-software 1.4
