though it should be noted that ODF (via the "flat XML") embeds the
images and such via base64. certainly not *ideal*, but git's
generally/usually smart enough to tell when that object/element's been
shuffled in the XML document, so it still works with the differential
indexing it uses:

<draw:frame draw:style-name="fr1" draw:name="Image1"
text:anchor-type="paragraph" svg:width="6.9252in" svg:height="4.7457in"
draw:z-index="0"><draw:image loext:mime-type="image/jpeg">
