unoconv  does  not  require  anything  by itself  (neither  DISPLAY  nor
writable HOME). However,  OO.org UNO binding can be  pretty difficult to
make  work  without  a  desktop environment.  Even  with  OpenOffice.org
headless version,  you will need  a X server  like xvfb to  start OO.org
listener. Moreover, this is not 100% reliable.

Maybe this is is better to keep the documentation in sxw format?
