Just to let people know....

On the Omegahat site (and source on github),
there are packages for working with Office Open
documents (and LibreOffice too), includinging
RWordXML, RExcelXML and the generic package OOXML
on which they rely.

These are prototypes in the sense that they
do not comprehensively cover the entire OOXML specification.
Instead, the packages do have functionality for some common things to get
data in and out of OO documents, and they have
foundation functions for building new features.
