libreoffice paper size magic.

Spent all evening googling and stracing libreoffice, etc.
Finally found how to make the miserable thing default
to Letter rather than A4 paper size on startup, so I
thought I'd let other Fedora users know :-).

step 1:

yum install libpaper

step 2:

echo Letter > /etc/papersize

That's it. Finally the system wide default paper size
for libreoffice is Letter rather than A4!

(The main problem is that google turns up 47,523,621
pages of people searching for the answer without
finding it, so there is a lot of chaff to sort through :-).

You really have to wonder why on earth libreoffice
doesn't use the default paper size setting from the printer
itself like every other program on the planet :-(.
