Just FYI. The export function from OpenOffice 3.1 (debian/linux) did
not work for me. Any graphic with vectorial stuff were badly exported,

I found out one can achieve decent result, by exporting the odp to
pdf. Then use pdf2svg:


Please note that any text is simply lost, as fonts are converted to
vectorial objects.
