Well, I tend to agree.  But OTOH, implementing the wheel again from
scratch and using up gazillion hours of man-power to somehow keep up
with existing free tools (like OpenOffice.org/LibreOffice, KOffice) just
to have it in Emacs is not a real alternative.

BTW: I've just found out that Org mode lets you export to DocBook
format, and that can be converted to OpenDocument.
