Re:I thought lack of VBA support was a feature

I understand the concerns about macro malware, though that could be addressed if macros were implemented in a jail or with a decent permissions policy with fine-enough-grained controls.
However, using a spreadsheet without the ability to easily create macro functions would really restrict its' usefulness for me.
Porting VBA macros to OOo Basic macros is pretty easy, it's just a pain to do manually all the time, and makes it impossible to share documents across platforms.
