Improve fallback mechanisms in Calligra ODF loading and saving.

The ODF standard specifies that adraw:framecan contain text boxes, ODF objects, binary objects, images, applets, plug-ins or floating frames. No current ODF-handling application can handle all of these. The standard anticipates this and specifies a fall-back mechanism by recommending to include an image representation of the object into the frame in addition to the object itself.

The image specification does not limit the formats for the images but recommends that vector graphics are stored in the SVG format and bitmap graphics in the PNG format. We propose to improve the fallback mechanism for unsupported objects in the Calligra suite.
