I just released an alpha version of a python class library:

PyOOTools - Process OpenOffice.org Writer Files and transform them to 
PDF without installing OpenOffice.org
     *  Make serial letters and reports from templates in the SXW-Format 
and store them anew as SXW-Files
     * Extract the pure text information from the SXW-Document and store 
it in a plain text file or a PDF-File
     * Perform simple transformations from SXW-Files to PDF-Files 
without installing OO - for example on a webserver

It contains about 1300 lines of python code and uses the 
ReportlabToolkit, the Python Imaging Library and the XML-Sax-Parser from 
the Standard Library.

As far as I know there is nothing comparable in Python yet. Could you 
list it in your SIG list of Python XML Tools?

The library is found here:

Thanks and greetings,
Martin Simon
