Adobe Illustrator has a decent .wmf conversion filter. Not free, not  
open source.

For free, the best thing would be to print to a .pdf, then open that  
in a drawing program which can parse that (Cenon, http:// 
www.cenon.info comes to mind, but doesn't run on Windows). Perhaps  
Inkscape then, http://www.inkscape.org
