I would like to see something like:

oowriter myfile.doc -output myfile.sxw

It seems quite common for any organization to have a big buch of word 
files, so if you can doit by command line then you can create a 5 
minutes script to convert all of these files. I does not matter if that 
takes a week or two because is the server who does the job not you.
