I find it frustrating that I sometimes have to use OpenOffice or
Word. I would prefer to use Emacs for editing Word and OpenDoc files
(and Abiword and ....)

But I do think it is a massive exaggeration to say that I want to
write OpenOffice in Emacs... I don't.

It seems to me that _most_ of a word processing program like OO or
Word is:

- wysiwyg display code
- integration with other apps
- definition of styles

and I don't see that Emacs has to do any of those things to have a
useful editor for OpenDoc files (for example).

Yeah. Sure. That'd be great.

Or were you asking me? I have a clue... but I'm not really interested
in editing them as XML files.
