OpenOffice has an Export option, which currently supports PDF and HTML.
I'd expect generic PostScript to fall happily in there, which is what
people generally mean when they print to a file.

The only use-case for 'print to file' I can think of, apart from to work
around broken applications (where we fix the apps), is when you have
designed a document and the print shop wants a Postscript file.  For
this, Export seems sensible.
