OK then let's stop compiling and distributing TeX, dvips, etc.! The approach: one tool for everything is
wrong, wrong! Although I rarely use Office suites, there are things that one can definitely do with
a scripting language and LaTeX but it is far easier to use a spreadsheet. I am not against Javier's
project I am just saying this is something the people who maintain babel should discuss.
