Perhaps someone will have a more Pythonic answer.  Abiword will
convert from rtf to html and can be run from the command line.  I
would also look at openjade and w3m.  You may have to parse the file
and look for the images and convert them separately using an
Imagemagick type program.  I don't have much experience with this, but
hopefully one of these will work or someone else can provide more info.
