OpenOffice spell dictionaries no longer available as .zip files; installer fails.

It looks like OpenOffice? no longer provides the dictionaries as .zip files -- downloaded them always fails with a timeout, even trying to go to the site in question using a web browser or ftp tool.
OTOH, the dictionaries are now published as extensions, here:
They are .oxt files, which are just renamed .zip files with some extra stuff. Unpacking one into the appropriate directory and restarting enables spell check to work again. But a random user would probably not be able to figure this out.
I suspect the installer could easily be modified to fetch the new ones.
