I don't think you're going to have any issues. AlienBob's package works 
well, although I'm not sure if his latest one includes the dicts or not. 
I don't think the early one did when LO was first making its break with 
OOo and EllisonCo.

But as far as Microsoft compatibility, anything in OOo is in LO, while 
LO has features not able to be included in OOo - at least that's how I 
understand the licensing issues to be.
