Hmm.  I have to disagree.  The fact that this importer cannot
import a xls file that Gnumeric exports is a bug in our xls
exporter.  Just because the ExcelRead importer for xls from Excel
95 is spotty is no reason to conclude that our xls exporter should
not be required to export files that ExcelRead can read.
