I have added support for exporting Orgmode buffers to
OpenDocumentText. The module is in elisp and has no external
dependencies. The changes are in my private branch [1].

I encourage folks reading this message and in this thread to try out my
changes and give me feedback.

It was WIP when this thread was in progress. Now I believe org-odt.el is
quite usable, relatively stable and undergone some testing.
