It was mentioned, either as a comment to the TC-comments list or on the
OOoCalc mailing list or in some RFE, maybe even on this list, I don't
exactly recall right now, but so far not considered because it would
cause incompatibilities with all existing applications.

Another settings candidate would be the use of regular expressions or
wild cards in lookups.


Automatic string conversions considered dangerous. They are the GOTO statements
of spreadsheets.  --Robert Weir on the OpenDocument formula subcommittee's list.
