Is it possible to use LibreOffice (I'm currently using 3.5.4) to create a pie chart where a single sector of the chart appears removed from the rest?

If so, how to do it?

Alternatively, can someone suggest an alternate tool that will allow me to create such a chart given the data? Much preferably one that is available in the Debian Squeeze main repo, but I'm willing to consider others too. Vector graphics export would be a big plus in that case.

The end result I want is something along the lines of this:

Pie chart with one separated sector
