	And of course we are taking patches to the native / built-in OO.o
code :-) that at least, is the Novell / OO.o team's preferred approach

	No matter how fast the XSLT converter is made, when we get to several
billion cells in a spreadsheet we can do better mapping directly from
XML to OO.o's native structures; not from ZIP -> XML via. XSLT -> XML ->
OO.o ODF import :-)
