No.  We've not updated the admittedly incomplete copy since it's initial
import; our breakages are our own. :)

I don't expect that we will update it again either.  The main issue of
contention is dependency-versions, around gnome-print and other gnome
libraries that the official version of goffice is using.  I do expect
that we'll disable features (e.g. printing support) rather than try to
make them work.

OTOH, it would be really nice to either:

- match the in-CVS libgoffice layout and files; I just made it 
  compile in the quickest and dirtiest way I could, with little 
  understanding of what should and shouldn't move into libgoffice,
  and where it should go.

- do another copy of libgoffice as it exists now, and rollback it's 
  dependencies to ours.

But since we have something right now that does bascially work, either
seems lower-prio at the moment in the face of the rest of GNOME2_STATUS.
