I have a huge quantity of eps images, generated by another huge quantity of gnuplot scripts. Is there a way to import them inside an Openoffice Writer document (.odt) at once?

I'm about to try the solution described in this post (and also in this one), first writing a script to generate a latex document with my eps images and then converting it to odt with tex4ht. This would have the advantage that I could also script the figures caption. However, if there is a simpler way I'd like to test it as well.

The best solution I've been able to find is explained here. However, eps images are converted into png format, thus loosing the vector format.

I've been able to uncompress the odt file and search/replace (with sed) the png occurrences with references to eps files but this is far from the optimal solution.
