Are you updating the name with each new iso?

I would vote for including openoffice, it takes much longer to compile 
than to download, or maybe make the package and any dependencies that 
are not already included available as a separate tarball.

Any chance of x11-wm/icewm and maybe x11/idesk? icewm with config option

I've been between hardware for a while but I can offer some compile time 
  if needed.
