	Hmm. So - just as a hyper-optimistic estimation - implementing change
tracking for tables, including the file-format support (there is none in
ODF as such) and so on is the order of a six man month type job: unit
tests, filter work, core data structure pieces etc.

	It is good to have people supporting and offering money for the work -
but 6 man months is 8*5*4*6 hours -> 960 hours. No idea what you think a
programmer should earn but $0.26/hr rate is below most estimations ;-)

	Having said that - it is clear that this is an important missing
feature. In general it would be good to split it into many bugs - some
of the features are smaller and less problematic.

	HTH !
