Hi Jos,

I really only replaced the implementation of the flat format filter with a lightweight version the requires neither Java nor Xslt. I didn't  look at what the Odf specification says about flat XML, so I can't tell you inhowfar the exported XML conforms to the spec. But in principle, the whole XML filter infrastructure in LibO is internally based on some kind of flat XML structure, so there shouldn't be anything missing from the documents.

The conversion back and forth is only insofar easy to share with other applications as LibO provides an API to importing and exporting documents. The filters depend on the LibO XML filter infrastructure an cannot be used independently of that. 

The changes I made are currently on their way to the "master" branch and might become available with LibO 3.4. 

Does that answer your question?
