AbiWord and perl libraries for converting doc(x) to html

Max suggested looking over CPAN for docx conversion. We then found the following.
Open-Office is a large download. AbiWord, which now handles docx (converts complex docx to html really well, tried it just now), is only 8MB. Maybe if the user doesn't have OO and Office/Word 2007+ already installed we can resort to using Perl code to look for Abiword to do the conversion (if the user has that installed). This will also work on Mac and Linux, since AbiWord is available for those platforms.
