It could be really simple since the separate files do belong together and
could have been a single file had the designers of OpenDocument made
echo "<xml>`unzip -c $FILE meta.xml contents.xml`</xml>";
I'll look at the SWISH-RUN docs, too. It only took a few days for my perl
to start to come back, but the major problem beyond that is a rather
severe inability to concentrate for more than 10-15 minutes and profound
forgetfulness -- both of which I have been trying to address.

I guess I'm a bit unclear about how SWISH::Filter works. I'd expect that
it would look at the ODF file, which is the zip equivalent of a tar-ball,
and then pass it off to the relevant SWISH::Filter::* filter which then
returns a stream of text. Is that about right?
