Thank you both! I've added it to the whiteboard descriptor file. I  
was going to submit a PATCH to whiteboard-plugins.xml, but I've just  
noticed an OpenDocument plugin (I thought that was what I was working  
on! :-). As that question is mildly off-topic I'll ask about it.

BTW, in case I or someone else needs this info Cyriaque meant for me  
to go here:
cd $FORREST_HOME/whiteboard/plugins/org.apache.forrest.plugin.input.odt

(in Cyriaque's haste to help, 'whiteboard/' was omitted)...
