I don't plan to create a spreadsheet, just a graph/chart tool. Obviously a
full-featured spreadsheet (with functions, formulas, etc.) would be great
for Sugar, but I think a simple, user-friendly charting activity would be
much more feasible and more likely to actually be used in a primary
school/middle school environment. (Full spreadsheet applications are pretty
daunting to learn.) I was just throwing out the idea of a spreadsheet-style
interface as the most obvious (but not necessarily best) type of interface
for this kind of program.
