Please note that I am replying nominally in the first rôle, but mostly as a
random person whose opinion has no impact on anything.

Broken support is worse than no support.

If they are broken anyway, what would be the point with that?
conversion of UOF and OOXML--the Sourcforge hosted project is nominally

Do I see a mention of XSLT there? I wouldn't want to touch that with a
three-metre pole wearing double rubber gloves. Reminds me of a certain
other MS-funded XSLT-based "converter" project. And their BSD license blurb
even has the same silly misuse of the term "the regents" (a clueless
leftover from "The Regents of the University of California").
