Removing packages you don't want is a tedious workaround. I have
developed a kickstart file for my testbed machine which names packages
I don't want installed, like the two OOo libs. I did this because I
expect to do multiple installations while I check out the OOo problem
you mentioned and a few other things. And then there's the next
beta...

Developers, please remember that many people in poorer countries are
turning to Linux and they are as much a part of your market as folks
in rich countries. Installations that squander resources such as disk
space will cause problems for poorer folks that rich folks can afford
to ignore.
