Well, that was a meaningless response. Didn't notice the choice in the
sentence on first read.

To be more clear, I think that a Word add-in in our tool chain is not a
good choice. I also think that an XSLT-based processing path (instead of
TCL-based) would be a laudable and fairly-achievable goal.
