To avoid pulling in python on x86_64 I could make a middle layer package
called openoffice.org-emailmerge or something so it's obvious (sort of)
what to install if you want email mailmerge and put 
/usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0/share/registry/modules/org/openoffice/Office/Writer/Writer-javamail.xcu
and the mailmerge script into it. That should make stuff work as
expected when installed/not installed and have that subpackage depend on
pyuno and writer, and writer not on it. Maybe additionally skip pushing
that subpackage as a FC-4 update, nifty as I think it is..
