I did toy with that idea, then recanted. Now I think the ideal might
be either a good honest open-source spreadsheet, or failing that,
use excel without using the really tricky proprietary tools, so that
the thing can easily be ported later to an open source platform.
My reasoning is that in the loooooong run, open source is gonna
win. What I have in mind does not require anything more
sophisticated than the goal-seek function and macros.

Tell ya what, lets think about posting the *equations* and formulae
then perhaps have a parallel effort, one open source and the
other excel. I can even imagine a way the two efforts could
bootstrap each other. spike
