there was a discussion on the linux-utf8 mailing list
( http://mail.nl.linux.org/linux-utf8/ ) in Nov-2005
about using OO.org to print plain UTF-8 text files
(with the `-p' option and an added BOMb).
the observation was made that the `ooffice' script
seems to be a Mandrake/Debian-thing? indeed, I do
not have such a script (I have both 1.1.<something>
(from my SUSE 9.1 distro) and also 2.0 (from the
OO.org site) installed, but no `ooffice'/`ooffice2'
