So in my own real-(in my)-world test files, v3.5.x is thousands of

This project has too many consumers and fan boys but no "power users".
Apart from that, the time of spreadsheets is over. In the 2020ies hardly anybody will be able to use them. The extreme decline of user skills and education is obvious.
I probably should have mentioned that even though LO v3.5.x killed my spreadsheet performance, I still use v3.5.x because....I like it. So I found a somewhat palatable work-around. I'm perfectly happy to be a power user and fan boy rolled into one!

I'd disagree that the time of spreadsheets (even complex ones) is over, though. There will always be people like me that evolve what starts out as a simple spreadsheet to track a few items...into something that is ridiculously complex and should really be ported to a true database engine! :-)
