Warning, the spaghetti talk is totally unrelated to the AOO / LO fork. People can already tweak LO: customizing the menus, toolbars and keystrokes, creating new templates, etc. These products are customizable at their core. To equate spaghetti sauce to 10Mloc of powerful code is to be highly confused.
Malcom Gladwell might have some good ideas, but they don't relate to this situation.
