This keep nagging me and I have a suggestion which will make that we lose less time once I start implementing the ODFF1.2 ISOWEEKNUM function:

I propose to change the saved function name for the current WEEKNUM function and to add backward compatibility to read saved ISOWEEKNUM and automatically redirect to WEEKNUM.

This way ISOWEEKNUM will get 'obsolete' in saved documents, making it possible to add the ODFF1.2 IDSOWEEKNUM function to Calc one or more versions after step 1.

I hope I didn't write in riddles ;)
