but we don't know from when the votes are. Or is there a possiblity to 
see in Bugzilla? The issue report is old as we can see on the ID. The 
extension could have been created after all or the most votes were done.

Maybe because we have an *Office* Suite and not a *Mathematical* Suite? 
;-) Seriously, I see  this as special mathematical featute and not a 
basic feature for a software suite that contains also a word processor, 
drawing, a presentation application and also database.

OK, this is a very good point that we can follow. Maybe we can indeed 
get some people that are willing to stay longer and to help us with the 
core application.
