Just out of interest, why would a db driver come into play? This is a
spreadsheet we're talking about.
The mention of db schema was merely to ask why Calc doesn't have
something like it.
And I do understand that a schema for calc would be nigh impossible,
spreadsheets don't have to follow any basic design principles, so
the spreadsheet would be the schema, but I suggested a simple list of
formulae as being useful.
And now that I think about it, the detective features could possibly be
expanded, first to work better across worksheets, second to allow
people to show all dependencies on a sheet at a time instead of per
cell, and third as some sort of "print preview", allowing a birds-eye
overview of what's going on.
