Number 1 would be the fastest solution but not very nice in the long run. 
Number 2 is very hard to get right for a cross platform library and even 
impossible for some platforms (IOS for example, although we don't support that 
at the moment).

So implementing this properly would seem like the best thing to do. I can add 
the necessary API (initially with dummy implementation) for the next release 
of libvoikko (in November) and start using that in libreoffice-voikko (to be 
released also in November).
