the openoffice.org2 RPMs for CentOS 4.5 work very well, but there seems to 
be some integration missing. OO2 saves all files in the new Open Document 
Format, e.g. .ods, which is displayed by nautilus as a simple ZIP file 
(which isn't that wrong).
But this means that you can't open the files directly by using a double click.

/usr/bin/file seems to have the same problem, it doesn't know that data 
type exactly, too. file reports it as "Zip archive data, at least v2.0 to 

Does anybody know if it's planned to improve the integration, so that it 
works like for the old OpenOffice.org?
