Looks good :-)

Some minor comments:

- the _() macro is used for strings that need translation, so please
use wxT() for those that don't, such as parts of SQL queries.

- I think we should have the menu options on a new Tools menu as well
(we normally duplicate context menu options onto the main menu for
accessibility reasons). We should probably move the Sort/Filter option
onto there as well.

Yeah - I've actually been thinking that for various reasons we might
want to have the active cell follow the mouse clicks and row/column
selections anyway.

Don't forget that empty strings are displayed as '' (two single
quotes), and a string that actually is two single quotes is \'\'.
You'll need to allow for those when building your filters.

I look forward to it :-)
