In a future step, I would like to integrate graphics into the
spreadsheet which could be created by a perl script with gnuplot from
data in the database; the images could reside in a directory and rows in
the database would have a field referring to the file name of the image.

If you are going to use Perl to manipulate graphic objects to insert
into a Calc document, why not use Perl for everything, including
querying your db, outputting your data in the desired format, and
inserting that array of data into a Perl-created/manipulated Calc file ?

Because all this has been implemented already to be used by anyone
without coding.
Hit F4 and drag your query into your favourite spreadsheet template.
Add spreadsheet formulas, (conditional) formatting, charts and stuff.
Finally, you may remove the "store data" flag from the import range so
the user is prompted to update the import range when opening this
document. All this works reliably out of the box.

Look at the following Perl modules :

How much time does it take to re-implemented the built-in functionality?
And why?
