set default margins for OpenOffice as a sysadmin?

I'm maintaining a lab of debian squeeze machines that run OpenOffice.org (i'm considering upgrading to LibreOffice from squeeze-backports). I'd like to adjust the default page margins for all users of Writer. Most instructions i've found suggest ways to do this as a single user, but not how to make the change system-wide. I don't want to ask every user of these machines to do this (and i also don't want to tamper with each home directory directly -- that's not something i can maintain reliably).

Alas, i can find no documentation about how to change the default page margins system-wide for either Oo.o or LibreOffice. Surely this is something that can be done without a recompile. What am i missing?
