Summarizing, it seems I need some efficient way to tell Calc, when it
opens that file, that all the cells of a certain column, except the
header, are NUMBERS, not text, in the -1234.12 format.

What Mirosław Zalewski has suggested upthread is essentially correct. The
data formats must match the language used (usually the locale) on import.
The solutions are to either: (a) edit the data to contain data formats used
in the expected language; (b) change the expected language on the Text
Import dialogue to match the used data formats. For a numeric format of
-100.25 try selecting a Language of "English (US)" or equivalent on the Text
Import dialog.

as I wrote in the email you replied to, this is exactly what I have been
doing so far. And it doesn't work, or isn't enough.
