The reason why I started learning GTK was that I was looking for a new
Widgetset for a spreadsheet. My idea was to bild a spreadsheet on top of
a database as a table editor. Furthermore there should be a Scheme (SIOD
or Guile) API to to the calculations.

I started this with XView and the idea to store the data in Scheme, but
that is not very fast, if the tables grow up. And that is the first
thing they do, if the spreadsheet is used in the "real world".
