I've been pondering this idea myself. Consider the really small staff they have, their accomplishments are truly amazing! Unfortunately, what they need are people to test test test and hammer at bugs, remaining (small) incompatibilities between their ODF implementation and ooo's . Additionally, the windows port has to be brought up to date (more testers on that platform, etc..). In other words, someone needs to work on the boring parts. It's not easy to find volunteers for that, but I think this could work with some investment.
