Libreoffice Google Drive plugin project - is it worth?

Hello,
I have been working on a Openoffice / libreoffice plugin for google drive similar to https://tools.google.com/dlpage/cloudconnect for MS Office.

I learned recently that libreoffice will be releasing LibreOffice Online .It was told that it may be ready in 2013. There were some demos, like here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BUfYRBMVkMQ

My question is: is it worth the effort developping a Libreoffice plugin for google drive like the one for MS Office? are there any people in the community interested in such a plugin ? is it worth developing this plugin regarding the fact that an online version of libreoffice will be available and it will make this libreoofice desktop plugin for G Drive obsolute?

what are you advice? should i continue developing this plugin and is it worth the effort ?
