      Description

      We can't index .xlsx .docx .pptx etc documents, but Apache POI can.

      Moreover, our ppt indexing includes terms like "Click here to edit the title", even though this isn't visible in the presentation itself (it is coming from the slide master?).

      Finally, Apache POI seems to have delivered improved interfaces for extracting text from Microsoft Office files. Perhaps we can use their newer interfaces.
