This is the sort of thing that worries me about enabling
these other formats as sources for Forrest. It will be
Forrest that gets blamed for the almost un-intelligible
messages that Cocoon is forced to spew out.

I suppose we can always add FAQs about such things.

It is also of concern that we might get dragged into
user help situations about those formats. We will need
good defense against a certain infamous word processor.

One defense would be to have very good example documents
in our seed site. That way we can simply say "go compare
with the xxxx-v11.sxw file".
