That tip will lower the memory consumption of OOO by quite a lot if you're
in the habit of right-clicking a word for spelling hints.  

I edited my dictionary list to just contain three lines:

$ cat /usr/lib/ooo-1.1/share/dict/ooo/dictionary.lst

DICT en US en_US
HYPH en US en_US
THES en US th_en_US

With the default (OOO 1.1.2 Fedora packages, because Fedora's 1.1.3
updates introduced a couple of printing bugs that were showstoppers for
me), right clicking a word to get spelling suggestions would make the
system start to swap and slow down - and this laptop is a P3/800 with
640M RAM.  I'm sure it would help out on a 128MB machine as well.
