There's an option "Range includes column labels" that is allowed when a table is

It would be nice if this option is smarter, and can either remember, or guess
when a cell is probably a column label.

Some ways it could determine this:
 * Is the cell at the top of a column?
 * Is it styled differently to the cells below it?
 * Does the data in this top cell appear different to those in lower cells (e.g.
text vs dates/numbers)

Failing that, it would be nice if the column labels were marked as column labels
- it'd save me a lot of time.

Hi Bettina,

one for you.

I'd like to change this. OOo does seem to internally tag a column label as being
a column label once I've told it, but the initial guess at whether something is
a column label doesn't seem to work (or exist?)

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
