By moving these importers over to *optional* extensions, then we can
do several things:

1) simplify the initial build and dependencies, moving us towards a
buildable and useful package

2) add the functionality back in over time as developers' interest focuses on it

3) retaining the optional status allows linking to LGPL and similar
weak-copyleft libraries

This goes back to a question that I had before: can file importers fit
into OOo's extension system?
