    Seems like a no-brainer, but I couldn't find it in my scan
    through the docs.
There are 2 approaches.

Beware neither is fully supported yet, things do not get
recalculated all the time.

  - Is there any feature that would allow me to identify two or more
    cells with each other, requiring that they always have the same
    value?  I would want to be able to change any one of them, and
    have the others all change automatically.
I don't understand.

  - Is there any feature to hide rows/columns by a pattern?  Say I
    have a column containing a running total by month, and I want to
    see only values for the end of each year.  Is there a way to
    hide all but every twelfth row?
not without writing some code.

  - What is the current status of extension languages?  I looked at
    the Python support a bit (eg,, but I don't
    see any documentation, so it's hard to figure out what all the
    possible hooks are.  What is the status of the guile plugin?
    Are there any plans or work-in-progress anywhere?  I'll start
    digging into the code tomorrow, but I thought I'd ask if there's
    any other information I've missed.
The api is still in progress.  It seems likely that python will be
the first implementation with corba wrappers to the api soon
