Macro to remove filters in Libre/OpenOffice

I often use filters in my Open/LibreOffice and wanted to know how to create a macro that removes all existing filters. The OpenOffice Wiki tells you how to do this.

 Sub RemoveSheetFilter()
  Dim oSheet          ' Sheet to filter.
  Dim oFilterDesc     ' Filter descriptor.

  oSheet = ThisComponent.getSheets().getByIndex(0)
  oFilterDesc = oSheet.createFilterDescriptor(True)
  oSheet.filter(oFilterDesc)
End Sub

The underlying logic is that when a filter is applied to a sheet, it replaces any existing filter for the sheet. Setting an empty filter in a sheet will therefore remove all filters for that sheet.
