Hi Yegor,

thanks for your message, it's good to know about the potential obstacles.

At the beginning I am aiming for the low hanging fruits which would be 
level 1 of your iterations. These are the parts that already have a 
convenience API available in the ODFToolkit that I can use directly. I 
expect this to be done in the next 2 to 3 weeks.

Everything else will require me to dig deeper into POI as well as the 
OpenDocument specification but I'd continue if there is interest in the 
work so far. It would be nice to have support for all the features but 
we have to see how well the concept of OpenDocument formulas matches the 
Excel world.

I will let you know when I am done with the basic functionality and of 
course would be glad if someone could try it, possibly even on an 
existing application that uses basic POI functionality.
