I agree that migrating Wycliffe/SIL to OOo would save them some cash.
However, it isn't quite as much of a saving as first appears. They are a
charity and therefore eligible for sizable discounts. Of course, even with
discounts it is still more expensive than using the OOo. (I don't work for
Wycliffe/SIL but have talked with the UK local IT manager about some of
these issue in the past.)
