I would hope that there would be no such "data-lossage" simply by using
different targets for presenting data.  We're not Microsoft, y'know. 
Lossage really isn't acceptable.

I do agree that we should be looking at going either to AbiWord or to
Gnumeric, or to any target application that provides the right hooks for
a report generator to use.

Is there anything like a 'report data exchange' standard?
