Since OO is shipped with Py 2.3 only, I use Jython to drive OO through
its Java API.

Our app is a mix of:
- ODT XML scrapping/templating based on Dom4j which, surprisingly,
when use with Jython, is the most pythonic XML API I have tried so far
(I find better than minidom, ElementTree or even lxml which is my
choice under CPython).
- OObean integrated in Java Gui and driven by Jython.

I don't like Java much though, but this is what our management wants
us to use.
By chance, Jython is tolerated so far.
