Oh, OK, I stand corrected: there is *one* Perl file in there. The rest
is as I described it, except that there's also a ton of shell
scripts. This in particular is perhaps a little worrisome for Win32,
unless one is running cygwin. Not sure whether Vitton's notes address

In any case, without much supporting evidence[1], I'd say that if you
are trying to get to OpenOffice this way, the road is probably paved
with thorns.


[1] I just tried a simple org->latex->oo transformation on Ubuntu 8.10,
with the default tex4ht distribution for this platform that synaptic
gave me: I tried for a few minutes without success. But I am a complete
ignoramus as far as OO goes, so it may very well have been my error.
