No, let's remove it.
Dale Scheetz <email@example.com> wanted to adopt the package but
I _did_ have a chance to look at this package, and personally I think
it's a pretty piece of useless code. It isn't anywhere near what I
expect in a spread sheet, and I don't expect much, as I rarely use
them. But I can't find any way to propogate field formats down rows or
accross columns, which, by itself, makes this a useless tool.
Otherwise, there are lots of tools.
