Thanks to Giles[1] for introducing us to the "--convert-to" option of
soffice.exe.  The option seems to be a fairly recent development[2].

With this change, one can export to pdf (or any other popular format)
via odt by a simple

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (setq org-export-odt-preferred-output-format "pdf")

There is no need to install additional converters. It is assumed that
the user has a working and fairly recent LibreOffice installation.


[2] There seems to be a bunch of fairly recent bugs with this option. So
a cutting edge LibreOffice would definitely be needed.


Feedback welcome.
