This is something I've been longing for a long time.  Wvare is cool, and
it should also be able to access properties of many Windows (OLE)
documents, not just Word documents.

I've been thinking about extending the File class so that it becomes
aware of the different file types and allows access to (read/write) meta
data and indexing of the files' content.  If we can setup a nice
framework for it, I'm sure a lot of people could contribute code for
specific file formats.

if you're on linux check out WVWare:

it's a C library that handles all word doc formats since 6.0 or so
