Apple will never allow it

Apple has a tendency to ban any app they think even dares to have similar features as their own, with the exception of some big media companies. I can't see them letting Libreoffice into their iOS app store, being as it is a direct competitor to iWork which is not only an Apple-made app, but a *paid* Apple-maid app. If I were the Libreoffice team, I would give iOS last priority unless they can secure an agreement, in writing, from Apple about this. Otherwise, they'll just be putting in boatloads of time for nothing. The iOS jailbreak community is relatively tiny and, if Apple rejects LO, that'll be the only way anyone can run it.
