    If needed I'd be happy to help on the table creation part of the code.
    Though I'm sure Dom has that covered. This would be really cool, I'm
    looking forward to this feature.

    Can libgda use Gnumeric and/or Evo address book/ appointments files as a
    data sources? It would be really cool to be able to pull info direct
    from those. We would start to have something like an office suite then.
