No-one is answering the question.  Forget the OpenOffice fixation.  The 
question is 'How do we know which of Fedora's packages have been altered in 
this way?'  OpenOffice would be one, but there are others.  Totem comes to 
mind, and I'd guess that there are lots more.  As Les remarked, it could be 
indicated in the package name.

As for how it would help, we could then decide for ourselves whether we need 
to go to the source and build our own packages.
