Re: nonparametric data analysis

As someone working with R ( as well as trying to figure out how to get Windows builds for Gnumeric up to date, I'm inclined to think that it would be better to
- shrink Gnumeric as far as possible,
- make it more easily portable across platforms, yet
- add "hooks" to allow very easy use of capable existing systems e.g., R and Octave and ... (name some others).

There is already work by Thomas Baier and Eric Neuwirth (R-Gnumeric), but -- according to what they said to me at UseR in Dortmund in August 2008 -- they are holding off activity until the Win-build is better established. R-Excel and R-OpenOffice seem to be up and running.
