I'm creating labels using OOo's File->New->Labels feature and have a template
ready to do a mail merge.

I'd like the contents of the label to be centered both horizontally and
vertically on the label.

A user from oooforum.org noted this was because 'Labels are based on frames'.

A fix or solution to this option would be appreciated. I have a client whose
mailing label requirements are very specific and I would like to migrate them
entirely to OOo from MS Office (which currently has this feature when used with
the Avery Label Wizard).

This is a very basic feature, for people using labels this is usually a critical shortfall that forces 
them to move to a different program.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
