Intermediate free software required.

It appears to be time for an intermediate translation software be made available.
Similar to those that change image types between png, jpg and tiff.

The idea is a free translation software that sits in between the file and the program calling for the file. When the file is called, the intermediate delivers to the program in the file type requested.

The intermediate software filter should be freely available for all operating systems. The consumer installs once and is never bothered again with this issue. Updates are backgrounded.

This also isolates issues of files not correctly importing/exporting and removes it as an issue from the program the user wants.

Those who claim proprietary cannot claim foul, can remain isolated and cannot claim foul when not forthcoming with assistance.

Perhaps more for 'Groklaw', but isn't this a potential trojan horse to
pollute GPLv3? We will see true "interoperability" only when odf and
openformula become the defaults within m$o. Until then, please avoid
creation of m$ formats using LO and continue to promote odf.
