Note: I'm far from an authority in this group :-) I keep getting my own
patches bumpbed. But since it comes in contact with some of the changes
I've made lately, I'll fire off a couple of comments anyway.

(Nope, haven't looked at the actual code)

It think the quoting used when copy here should be the one from Copy
Quoting and not Export Quoting. I actually had it on my list to do that.
While you're working in taht code anyway, maybe do that while at it?

Does this also fix the complete weirdness that you can have *both* a row
*and* a cell in a different row selected at the same time? That keeps
throwing me off all the time.

And yes, this sounds like a great feature :-)

Sounds like a good idea. Assuming there are no other problems with the
grid (I don't really know enough about wx to comment on that part).
