Hi Astron,

can you propose an alternative patch in the bug report?

I can't see any proposal in the bug you reference (though Jenei
talks about adding it) - but I agree with your assessment. Besides
that, the file is no proper ODF file (i.e. removing the .pdf
extension and throwing it at other odf-processing applications will
not work), so the name may not match user expectations.
