Thanks all for the input!

For what I can see, the quoted comment was introduced by Kurt Zenker in 

ROT13 and the other date management functions present in the calc/addin code 
seem to be part of the newer (UNO based?) scadding functions.
I've tested ROT13 and a couple of the others succesfully. In fact, after 
removing the calc/addin directory there seems to be no change to the actual list 
of functions in calc.

If you prefer to wait until this patch (removing calc/addin) has been tested for 
a while, that should be fine.
I get the impression that this old mechanism is no longer used, but it might be 
worth waiting a little bit before removing (?).

Happy to proceed either way.

Thanks & regards,

I've a (very) vague memory of something like ROT13 implemented through
this ?

e.g. =ROT13("apple")

I'm probably wrong, or a decade out of date on that one, but see if that
works before/after AddIn disabling.
