Re: Large test spreadsheets

In an effort to move away from puting the burden on the developers, I began
designing functions that would compute intrinsically faster by expanding
existing functions to array functions:

 - LOOKUP() and OFFSET()-functions will follow when I have some more time

I went another route with VLOOKUP/HLOOKUP/MATCH in very
recent versions of Gnumeric.  Basically, if the range is shared --
and that is quite common -- then lots of preprocessing of the range
is shared between cells.

I do not think there is a need to bother the user of the spreadsheet
with this.  If we discover (real-life) sheets where such repetitive
formulas using a common table cause serious problems, then it is
not hard to fix.
