That would be a Good Thing.  ✔️✔️✔️  😀😀😀  ➕➕➕

Here's a typical use-case:  I do a lot of stuff with Gnumeric.  Often
other people, including windows users, want to use my spreadsheets.
There are serious compatibility issues.  Porting the spreadsheets is
a royal pain and a waste of resources.

Hypothetically, one solution would be to make Gnumeric 100% compatible
with XL, but I doubt that is going to happen anytime soon, and it would
probably not be desirable anyway.

Therefore, AFAICT, the best way to support sharing of spreadsheets is
to have a windows implementation of Gnumeric.

Even if the windows version left a few exotic features unsupported, it
would still be a Good Thing, much better than nothing.
