That's definitely not what I'd expect...

"calc8" ? That's esoteric, LibreOffice-only, technical language we're using
there.

I just searched on the TDF Wiki and the Help Wiki, and got zero hits for
'calc8':
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/index.php?search=calc8&title=Special%3ASearch&go=Go
https://help.libreoffice.org/index.php?search=calc8&title=Special%3ASearch&go=Go

I also checked info in latest 4.4.1.2 regarding the --convert-to switch:
--convert-to output_file_extension[:output_filter_name[:output_filter_options]]
[--outdir output_dir] files

I don't see any clear mention of where one can find the list of the output
filter names/options.

I strongly suggest that we clean up this interface so it's intuitive, doesn't
refer to internal LO jargon, and is well documented. Perhaps UX can help here?
