Hi :)
Does anyone know of an Extension that can add back this support for
the pre-ODF formats?

an actual extension means taking that old source code and
remaking/maintaining it compatible with all the rest of the current,
ever-evolving LO code. IIUC the wish to NOT have to do that anymore is
exactly the reason why that compatibility was dropped, so that's a dead end.

But it isn't necessary. I'd settle without any second thought for a
stand-alone, single-purpose converter:

take lo,

remove EVERYTHING, starting from the complete user interface, except
all and only the code that makes the conversion wizard window and its
buttons/fields/checkboxes, and what's needed to run from the command

only keep what's left compilable/installable on Linux, Windows,
