When using Writer, and editing a table within the document, selecting a row and
then clicking "Insert Row" actually appends a row, because the new row winds-up
below the currently selected row instead of above it.

This is aggravating because Calc does not do the same. In Calc, Insert Row puts
a new row above the currently selected row.

I think it would be better o make it configurable - just to prevent confusing
"Writer veterans" who are used to the current behaviour.
An additional option in Tools.Options.Writer.Tables should be a good thing here
where the user could define wether he want to insert a row above or below the
current cursor position as default.
