An oddball use case

I'm using Excel (because that's what's on the machine at work) to keep a rather large state machine under control: the front page is a grid of State vs Event and the end result is about a thousand or so lines of C code that lick'n'sticks straight into the compiler.

If I tried hard, I could probably dump it straight into the SVN server... mind you, it turns out that Excel still won't allow more than 64k of text in a cell, and fails silently if you try it.
