They are way too bloated in my opinion, for most uses. In my  
computer, Openoffice takes a full 2 minutes to load, and similar  
performance for NeoOffice, and their memory demands are huge as well.  
If I just want to add 10 numbers, I shouldn't have to go through all  
that. ( I guess that's why I created my Spreadsheet bundle for  

 From my point of view they serve essentially one purpose: To allow  
one to open Microsoft Office files without having Microsoft Office.

Anyway, to return to the script question, I just committed a simpler  
version of the script, in Ruby, that should work just fine with your  
case. Let me know how it works (if you follow the repository version  
of the LaTeX bundle that is.)
