[fpc-pascal] Suggestions for fpspreadsheet

I got some time and I decided to improve fpspreadsheet:

I wrote a OLE document generator, so now it is possible to generate
Excel 5 spreasheets in any platforms (actually some lines of code are
missing for big endian systems). And it supports numbers, text and
formulas, as well as multiple worksheets in the same file. Excel 2
support is also complete.

I have some more time, but I am not entirely sure what would really
add value to the library, so I thougth I would ask possible users what
they really need (I already have all the functionality I need). Some
ideas I had are:

* Add support to also read Excel 5 files
* Add write support to other formats
* More advanced formulas
* Make charts (maybe too hard?)

I went for Excel 5 because it's supported by nearly all spreadsheet
software out there and has lot's of features.

I am not saying I will implement any of this in a short time, just
asking for suggestions =)
