There's good news and bad news. If you use an individual field object 
for each table cell and you write a docking handler that allows for loc 
and rect changes then you have a very powerful library that does what 
you need. This could be the beginning of reinventing the spreadsheet. 
Perhaps someone has already created such a stack?
