I have on my post several versions of OOo : 1.1.5, 2.4.2, 3.2.1
The install of LibO took over seamlessly (without question)
the user profile of 3.2.1
This raises several questions:
- Libo should it propose the resumption of an existing profile OOo (but IMHO yes
what about possible conflict of extensions)?
- If so the choice should be offered (if multiple versions)
(IMHO not necessary: resumption of the latest version)
- In any event the recovery must be interactive (may be

You can opt out of auto-migration via setting the SAL_DISABLE_USERMIGRATION
environment variable. LibO already tries migrating the newest OOo version first
(see officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/Setup.xcu's VersionIdentifiers
element for the specific order).
That leaves the question whether the config migration should be interactive -
it was decided that this is something that would confuse the vast majority of
the users on first start, so the default is to migrate the newest OOo config
(and opt-out via the expert option mentioned above).
for the start of the discussion.
I also believe that the current behaviour meets with needs for 99% of users, for resting 1% we can think about some selections in custom installation - with very low priority.
