Make the office importer module work with both OpenOffice and MS Office.

XWiki has the ability to import office documents into wiki pages using its office importer application. Additionally, inline documents preview is now under development. These solutions rely on an OpenOffice server installation which is driven by the JODConverter library. While the output of open office is mostly acceptable, the MS Office version is sometimes better. The task would be to extend the office importer module by allowing it to also use MS Office applications, not just the OpenOffice server.

Steps:

- define the Office Services, build a basic server module (on top of XOffice automation or as a separate service using the XOffice content management)
- consume the services trough the office importer/preview module[s]
- extend the office importer application UI with the new features.
