I don't know whether you can script OOo from the commandline... But OTOH
DOC is a doomed format because as from Windows 7 Wordpad does not
support DOC any more. Its successor is DOCX. Besides, ODT is supported.
So at least Windows users will slowly change to DOCX which means that it
will become easier to convert from MS Word to ODT which you then can
apply w2l to.

I've just come across wordml2latex, perhaps this is another solution for
those running MS Word 2003ff.:
