There *is*, but it's not exactly straight forward. One option involves running a "headless" OOo
as a server, then putting together some code/script that will call up the services you need.
I tried getting it to work a while back, but never quite got that far.
Alternatively, the .sxw file is XML so perhaps it could be transformed to SGML, and then use
Jade to produce PDFs? I'm pretty certain this has been done.
