I have that in the pipeline. At present it handles pdf, ps, doc, txt and html. 
I have also written a tool to heuristically correct text that is mangled by 
ps2txt or pdf2txt (i.e. hyphens, missing ligatures, etc.).

It's the last week of semester here, so there is a real chance that I'll be 
able to integrate this stuff into GIFT soon.
