Try that experiment with Rawhide (updating just individual packages when
you feel like you need more modern version of the particular pacakge;
the trick is never to run unqualified yum upgrade for whole system).

don't agree with the level of brokeness all Fedora packages requirements
have IMHO.

Fortunately, presto makes miracles about OpenOffice, but again only if
you regularly update complete distro.
