I am not an openffice.org user in debian, so i might have missed something,
but so far:
the -kab integration is linking against the old kde3 libraries, so it hardly
can work with current kaddressbook et all.
about -kde is supposed to show it integrated with kde4/qt4 and if that is
working (i have not checked), it will be kde3/qt3 and you have to install
kdelibs from kde3 that some users might have ride of already.

For me it is ok to keep -kde if you rename it to -kde3, but not sure it is
worth the bothering (NEW...)

PS: CC'ed pkg-kde-talk@ in case some heavy OOo users has something to add.
