I'm unfamiliar with OOo's extension system. How hard would it be to
add "import OLD format $FOO"(*) as an extension?

If it can be implemented "soon" or "later" as an extension, then it
seems moving this in that direction makes sense *regardless* of the
binfilter problems (ie. as a way to modularize). And that you could
start out by tossing everything on Day Two, then letting the
"interested devs" bring the feature back as a set of one or more


(*) assuming my understanding is that binfilter is *only* about
importing archaic formats
