This is true. But we can help George building a dictionary even starting 
from a very simple wordlist. For example, George can send us a list of 
100 words in Dholuo and we can package a proof-of-concept dictionary for 
OpenOffice with that information.

George, is the Dholuo language you wish to support this one?
We may need to add support for that language to OpenOffice, but this is 
still feasible.

If you want to see a proof-of-concept Dholuo dictionary for OpenOffice, 
just build a list of at least 100 Dholuo words (a few thousands would be 
much better, but these will suffice for a quick feasibility test). Then 
package them following the guidelines Rob sent, or my FOSDEM 
or simply send us the list and we will do the packaging.
