This said, the python plugin feature allows a cell within the

setting for every sheet opened with Gnumeric, and I'm hoping to be able
to write separate functions for separate sheets.  The help manual has a
page that hints of the possibility.

Interesting.  I'd like to hear more on why you'd like the functions
to be workbook local.  Actually is that sufficient or do you see a
potential need for sheet local ?  For simple routines such as the
example you site its probably feasible to use a named expression.
For something more complex with iteration a real function is clearly
necessary, but I'm a bit fuzzy on why you'd want it to be workbook

Oh, one other point regarding the help system.  It is possible to return
to the earlier system - pre-gnome2 - where help opened immediately
without the delay we are currently experiencing.

Ahh progress.
pre-gnome2 pre-generated the html.
