It would be great if openoffice would support latex like floating of images.
So for example imagine you'd
.) type a short paragraph, 
.) insert a image large enough that it would only fit on the next page and then
.) continue writing after the image 

In this situation I'd have the first page only having one short paragraph and
the rest showing an empty page. And the next page showing the image and the rest
of the chapter.

It would be helpful to have a additional wrapping style that would allow the
text that follows the text to actually being displayed before the image, thus
filling the empty part of the former page.

Additionally I should be able to resrict floating of the image only within
chapters,sections and subsections
