You cut it right to the point. gnumeric and GtkExtra are not comparable.
gnumeric is an eye candy, whereas GtkExtra is for efficiency zealots: it's
very minimalistic (requires only GTK+ to be installed) and good for real-time
plotting (which is what I myself am using it for). I would highly recommend
using the recent CVS version of it, as the official one has memory management
There is also the (seriously lacking last time I checked) gtkmm-based and
qwt-inspired plotmm -- http://plotmm.sourceforge.net
authored by one
of qwt developers who got displeased by the direction qwt has taken and,
in particular, by all these dependencies around it.
Finally, there is the GTK+-based GtkDatabox -- http://www.eudoxos.net/gtk/gtkdatabox/index.html
Apologies for being a bit off topic. Since the plotting issue was brought up, I just
wanted to share my findings.

It looks like the plotting is done with the goffice library. However,
it looks like this library includes considerably more than just the
plotting / graphing functionality, so it may be a bit more work than
just wrapping a graphing library. This also makes it less attractive
for people who don't want to add all of the dependencies of
gnome-office to their app dependencies. Of course, I haven't looked
at it extensively...
