Will I face any problems by installing the lo-menubar to give libreoffice global menus in Natty?

I'm wondering why it isn't installed by default. Are there stability problems or anything?

From what I've read, there may be cases where it does not work correctly. For now, at least, it is not enabled by default:

There are still a few rough edges to be worked out in lo-menubar, so until then it will not be installed/enabled by default.

For example, on rare occasions the window opens with the menu inside of it, and then the menu disappears (after a few seconds) and shows up in the unity panel as expected.

There are still rough edges (as of today and Ubuntu 11.10, version 0.1), especially crashes that only occur when the extension is installed.

As a consequence, you should definitely not install it now.
