Fedora isn't just about OOo though.  There are a lot of other packages in the 
distribution and slipping FC4 just to wait for a build of OOo that may/may not 
be coming out soon after the FC4 freeze date seems a bit presumptuous.  However, 
since it is a fairly important app, its schedule may get more weight than, say, 
gcalctool.  As we get nearer to the freeze, we'll have a clearer picture of the 
schedules of both FC4 and OOo 2.0, and Fedora has been known to slip due to 
other reasons too.
