Subject: Re: [office-comment] ODFF: NPV

Hi David,

Good catch. Indeed, order of values is significant here, which makes
NPV() an exceptional case because usually for functions taking
a variable list of arguments, especially if they accept a ReferenceList
or NumberSequenceList, the order of arguments is not significant.

So far, IIRC, there wasn't the need to specify a general evaluation
order for 2D range and array arguments. If it turns out that there is
some general behavior that is needed to be referred at several places we
should add that. For now I'm adding it to the NPV() function. Will be
present in the next revision I'll upload to the repository.
