You are right, it is not available yet. When it will be available is
unknown. It is a question of mood and time constraints.

I welcome any help if you are interested in lending a hand. I started
the process of porting the Python code to C++ but got derailed into
other things and left the job half-done. The integration with OOo is a
straight-forward process, so the real task is the port to C++.

If you are interested in the details, feel free to post on 'developer'
and start a thread there.
