We have handlers as part of MIME::Parser, that I had thought about
publishing.  It might be more useful to step a level higher than simply
wv, and have "Document to HTML", such that you throw a document at it,
it uses 'file'/magic to work out what kind of document it is (or
extensions, if people are so nice) and then calls the appropriate
sub-module to convert it (wv, ParseExcel, Powerpoint -- for which I
have found nothing, but would love to!)

Then MIME::Parser could use it, and programmers can access it
directly for other purposes (e.g. procmail scripts ;-)
