Actually I just unopkg add'ed it and then unopkg list --shared and
looked at what was the name of the extra extension listed there to
figure out what OOoLaTeX called itself. I could probably have
alternatively found that out by grovelling through the code.

That should work I'd say, assuming that the package hasn't hardcoded
those paths into itself somewhere, pity that the upstream doesn't have a
pure source package but seeing as it just looks like a hack to have
latex2emf available for execution by some starbasic code we'll probably
get away with it.
