Excellent. I assume you mean in the src tree itself?

I suppose the hardest part would be exporting db functions.. But a nice
start would be just to take a snapshot of all values, and export to SQL
just so you can run some quick queries.

I suspect that you'd want some sort of gui to configure what goes
where.  That is less well defined.  Only the text exporter handles
that currently.  It's not hard, just not as pretty as I'd like.
The main limitiation is that there is nowhere to store the
parameters right now for resaving.  That will get addressed in the
1.3.x cycle.

So by this you mean there is no way to restore the gnumeric functions
and their arguments once you export to a flat format, like text or
simple SQL?

Can I view the 1.3.x roadmap anywhere? What is the timeframe on it?
