If you knew what you were doing you could crack open the source, make
some modifications and recompile openoffice to take command line options
like:

oofficce --convert --from ./foo.doc --to ./foo.txt

Of course, FAIK, it's already included in the code.  Check out the
documentation for OpenOffice for more details.
