After some discussion with Ulrich on IRC, we settled on the name
"app-officeext",
which we'll be able to fill with a couple of hundred (open|libre)office
extensions then... :) I guess this is a compromise that we all can live with.

So, I'll implement that tonight.

Cheers,
Andreas

And committed.

There's already a first package in there, app-officeext/texmaths - a LaTeX
replacement for the LO formula editor, generating embedded svg. Give it a try,
it's really cool!

There's also app-office/ooextras since a long time.
