For odfmeta you start with
odfmeta -l lists.odt
There is a man page in the source, which I haven't figured out how to get
setup.py to install. It would probably be better if it defaults to listing
the metadata if you supply no options.
For xml2odt, the problem you get is that it won't write an ODT file to the
terminal. It should fail more gracefully. You need to redirect to a file.
Those are the kind of errors the original developer would be blind to. I'll
get the fixed.
With regards to the rest, I'll have to investigate.
