 It's not implemented anywhere in wxMSW sources because it's just a custom
format used by Excel and other Microsoft applications (and hence ubiquitous
enough to make it a de facto standard). We could support it, of course, as
this would be both useful and not especially difficult (see the description
in the paragraph entitled "Initiating a Data Link with the Paste Link
Command" at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms648775(VS.85).aspx).
However as often the question is whether other systems (Unix, Mac...) have
anything similar. If they don't, or at least until we find about how they
handle this, it would probably be better to keep the code dealing with this
format in LMI itself.
