    Yes it's feasible. I can have a look, because it could be an interesting
    demonstration of the Emacs Xwidget branch as well.

    Here is how the similar idea works in Inkmacs(Emacs + Inkskape):

    - Emacs communicates with Inkskape using a DBus channel
    - Emacs sends dbus commands to update text objects in Inkskape. Inkskape
    immediately redraws its display when it receives the dbus commands

It would be possible to implement this, if LibreOffice has the same
sort of feature that Inkskape has.  But does it?

The next question is whether this would work fast enough in LibreOffice.
