Better support for Office documents

It would be good to have better support for Microsoft Office documents. For example, building a Media Engine based on Aspose (http://www.aspose.com/) would allow ADAM to create a preview of every slide (PPTX), page (DOCX) or worksheet (XSLX). It would also allow to extract all contents from the file.

content types meta-data

Totally agree with this need. Since we house lots of MS Office types in ADAM as part of a WIP process, having this kind of extended previewing, not to mention ability to expose the metadata contained in the "Advanced Properties" portion of MS documents would be extremely useful.

thanks for the suggestion
