+Pyspread is a non-traditional spreadsheet application that is based on and
+written in the programming language Python.
+The goal of pyspread is to be the most pythonic spreadsheet.
+Pyspread expects Python expressions in its grid cells, which makes a
+spreadsheet specific language obsolete. Each cell returns a Python object
+that can be accessed from other cells. These objects can represent anything
+including lists or matrices.
+Pyspread is free software. It is released under the GPL v3.
+- CSV import and export
+- Chart creation dialog based on matplotlib
+- Python objects as cell results
+- Python macros
+- GPG based save file signatures for preventing foreign code execution
+- Access to all Python modules from within cells. These modules allow
+ for example matrix operations via numpy or fixed point decimal
+ numbers for business calculations via decimal.
+Optional Requirements: python-xlrd (optional for opening Excel files).
