Overweight Wiki Page

Hi,

I've got a couple variations on a way overweight wiki page.

It began as a MS Word file, and it's been through Open Office,
shell, sed, perl, awk, python and the result is not too shabby.

Should publish it, but really ought to rewrite it all in python first.

Is there a way to use the command line to open a .doc file in
Open Office and save it as html an can add to my polyglot
assortment of scripts, in the meantime?

The first version at:

    http://wiki.laptop.org/go/VistA_Monograph_Wiki

gets:

WARNING: This page is 246 kilobytes long; some browsers may have
problems editing pages approaching or longer than 32kb. Please
consider breaking the page into smaller sections.

I've been looking at breaking it up and reassembling it using
templates and there is a partial version at:

    http://wiki.laptop.org/go/WV_VM

Is there a easy way to transfer all 70 some pieces at once,
instead of doing them one at a time using

    http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Special:Upload

But wait that's only for Images not for Pages.

And when the templates all get reassembled it's going to
be just as big, if not a little bigger.

What I really need is a syntactic variant, that builds a
combined Table of Contents, but does not put all the
pieces together into a combined wiki page, the links
in the Table of Contents take you the right spot in
one of the component pages.

Does that capability exist, or am I just dreaming?
