Sadly, LibreOffice currently only provides RPM and DEB binaries, so I
couldn't install and test-drive it on my Gentoo GNU/Linux box.  But I
had a look at LibreOffice's Git repository.  That also contains the UNO
API including the python bindings.  So I'm pretty sure that DocView
works as good with LibreOffice as it does with OpenOffice.
