Re: how to convert VB scripts to Gnumeric python

I tried to write a script to do some basic operations, but I immediately hit problems in introspection
and/or pygobject.  Specifically, something gets terminally confused over sheet_cell_set_value
leading to a double-free.  Even if they fix that right now, it's going to be years before stable distributions
will see the fix.

In this particular case I might be able to paper over the problem by interposing a function that copies
its argument instead of taking ownership.  That'll slow down python a bit, but if you're using python
you're probably not that much in a hurry.

The key to getting parts of Gnumeric available via python is to have accurate introspection annotations
for the relevant APIs.  If anyone feels like helping with that, it would be appreciated.
